The Southern Out Islands Sights

Sandy Point

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 07/11/2013

Fodor's Review

Sandy Point anchors the island's southwestern end, overlooking French Bay. Here, on a hill, you'll find the ruins of Watling's Castle, named after the 17th-century pirate. The ruins are more likely the remains of a Loyalist plantation house than a castle from buccaneering days. A 5- to 10-minute walk from Queen's Highway will take you to see what's left of the ruins, which are now engulfed in vegetation.
