We scheduled the Beehive Trail for our afternoon hike on the last day of our trip. As we were making our way back to the hotel after lunch to regroup, I saw an interesting trail on Google maps.
Intrigued, we made a quick detour to check it out.
Since Beehive was the main event for the afternoon, we didn’t linger much on Bar Island. However, I really appreciated the unique experience.
The key to hiking Beehive is to go counterclockwise, so that you’re going up the rungs instead of down. We saw a few doing the clockwise loop, but they were in the minority.
Of the two trails, Precipice is a bit more fun because of how close you get to the cliff edge. However, Beehive is much more scenic, and you get more bang for the buck in that regards. I would recommend doing both trails if you can, but if you have to pick only one, then I would recommend Beehive for the gorgeous views.
