In Treasure Beach you can walk along all the beaches but there are always points at which you must cross onto the road to get to the next bay. (Well, almost always….we’ll get to that).
The first crossover heading west is at Sunset itself (going from Old Wharf and Calabash to Frenchmans), so we walked right out to the road and headed towards Jack Sprat, the point at which you can get back onto the beach.
Right across from Sunset was a distinctive place. Never did ask what it was, but those are plastic bottles in the wall on the left there. Reminds me of a video I saw once about a way to make air conditioning with plastic bottles to channel air.
Moving along, we made a quick stop at Jake’s for a photo:
We stopped in to Jack Sprat for a jelly coconut ($200J) to take on our walk, and to cross over to the beach.
Right by the restaurant, Jack Sprat has its own little beach with more tables on the water and a lifeguard and loungers.
S makes a beeline for the loungers while we get our jelly coconut.
I took a little video of the scene….
…and we continued on our walk. I don’t think Jack Sprat’s beach/bay has a name, though there are a couple of homes on it, it’s not too large.
It does have, at the far end, the iconic Buttonwood Tree, featured in Treasure Beach photos, artwork, logos and such. Battered by many hurricanes, I’m pleased to report that it lives on.
Looking back at “Jack Sprat Bay”
The hike around the Buttonwood tree is one I did last time I was in Treasure Beach but either I forgot how rocky it was on the Frenchmans side or it’s eroded…but we did some serious rock climbing to get to Frenchmans from the tree! A little in-water hike too, but we made it.
So the walk continues…
