No, they are hidden !!

If you are looking for the buried treasure of Montbars, then his cave is apparently in the hill above Gouverneur beach at the far end from the car park. There is supposed to be a trail although I've not been there !

We found some hidden caves at the beach beyond the washing machine which is a hike over the mountain to the right of Grand Fond.

Park in the small lot near the entrance to Grand Fond and walk along the rocky beach to the right. You will see the goat path up the hill (somewhat of a climb at first but the path gets better.) Follow the path and stop along the way to take in the amazing vistas. The washing machine is so named for the swirls of water that wash in and out. The natural pool is a bit further and if you want to get in you have to climb down. Be warned that with the constant current visibility is often not good and there are sea urchins living inside.

I definitely recommend sneakers or a sturdy sport sandal for this. The rocks are loose and you can slide easily. It is a bit of a workout if you are not in great shape. Also I would go in the AM as there is no shade. At a leisurely pace this can take over an hour to go out and back.

I love the wild and undeveloped beauty of this part of the island. Hope you enjoy!
