Black Point Tunnel

Black Point Tunnel


Also known as Jasper Rock Tunnel, it was constructed around 1815 using slave labour. A marvel of engineering for its time, the 360 feet long tunnel was drilled to enable easier transport of sugar from the mills of Grand Sable Estate to the wharf at Byreau.


A walk through the tunnel is like taking a trip back in time. Black Point itself was also used as a film location for the movie Pirates of the Caribbean Curse of the Black Pearl.

The tunnel is 20 miles from Kingstown and driving time is about one hour. The site opens from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
