Stroll through this charming village and along the coast until the road ends in the island’s hilly south west. From here there is a track down to the wonderfully secluded beach at Chatham Bay as well as another that runs along the rocky ridges of Union Island’s volcanic interior. Pass MountTaboi and continue northwards until you arrive at the stretching coastline of Richmond Bay. Follow the road to Belmont Bay and take a look at Belmont Salt Pond.

Continue hiking along the paved road until you arrive back in the heart of Clifton where you can reward your efforts by enjoying great food and refreshments at one of the many bars and restaurants along the waterfront of Clifton Harbour.
