“Well worth the hike up the hill”

Reviewed 9 April 2013

The church is charming, definitely worth the hike up the hot asphalt hill - and don't miss going around the back for the best view of the Grenadines!

Perched on top of the hill in Mayreau this simple stone church shows a link to the islands past including its French links. It also offers one of the best views of the Southern Grenadines including the Tobago Cays.

We were visiting Mayreau as a stop on our cruise aboard the S/V Wind Spirit. Our ship tied up off the shore of Mayreau. We spent the day on the island. It is a beautiful place with one road from the beach, straight uphill, into the small village perched on the top. The walk is somewhat aerobic so if you suffer from frailties you may want to stay on the beach. If you're up to the exercise, you'll enjoy the stroll and, more so, the sights from the top. The Mayreau Catholic Church sits on the very top of the hill. You can't miss it. There are a bunch of small restaurants/bars along the way up the hill, but on the top there is the church and a school. The surrounding area offers fantastic views of Tobago Cays and the surrounding sea. At least nineteen shades of blue and turquoise in the waters. Spectacular. Have fun here!! You will.

After steep climb from the harbor, the little church is very pretty, and from the back there is a spectacular view of the Tobago Cays. The road is paved, and the walk takes about 20 minutes. Well worth it.
On the road down, a must visit is Chez Robert, a quaint little bar, festooned on the outside with all manner of ocean decor, and inside with flags from visiters worldwide, and good will messages written on the walls. The proprietor is Robert, an island character who will make you most welcome.

Ok, this hill is STEEP and much higher than is evident from the bottom, so be sure to have water and a hat for the hike. Or you can take one of the taxis from the dock area, but you have to decide down there - we saw very few cars driving, let alone a wandering taxi.
But it is SO worth it to go to the top!! The tiny church is beautiful all by itself. And the 360 degree view from the small park area to the left of the church is AMAZING!
There is a small donation box outside the church, so be sure to have some cash to drop in. (You'd pay an entrance fee for an attraction elsewhere wouldn't you?)
