Carleva Bay is ideally flanked to the south by the warm Caribbean ocean, and to the north by the famous Yallahs salt ponds, ponds shrouded in scientific mystery and local folklore.
Reportedly, the salt ponds are said to have 13 times the salinity of the sea. On windy days salt bubbles accumulate by the side of the path, occasionally drifting across the path. At one time the ponds were once used for harvesting the salt.
Past the smaller salt pond, a path takes you across a narrow piece of land between pond and ocean, leading you to what we call Little Rasta Beach. The Rastas once had a small hut here where they sold food, now no longer. The beach is lovely, and the waters almost always quite calm. We love taking a dip into the ocean when we go on one of our morning jogs by the Salt Ponds. Want to wake up to the sound of the waves, put on your jogging shoes, and take a brisk jog (or a leisurely one!) to the Little Rasta Beach for a morning swim? Let’s make it happen.
