Overview

The Careening Cove is Hassel and happens to be where the original Pirates of the Caribbean fixed their ships. The terrain is risky and hard to tour because of the stickers and thorns on the Island. Hassel forms the Western outskirt of St Thomas Harbor. The Island occupies a distance of 135 acres, and the Southern Peak is the highest altitude you can discover on the Island.

The Island has a rich history preserved in the National Park that occupies 95% of the Island acquired in 1978. The sole duty of the park is to maintain the Island’s rich history and heritage.

The place is not only popular for its rich historical attractions, but its beauty, beaches, restaurants, and many other exciting attractions.

Navigation

How to navigate the Island and access this Grand Island is the desire of all travelers. The best option is hiking. Hassel Terrain is rocky and dangerous, therefore risky to move around the Island with any other transport options except hiking.

Hiking trails were constructed for easy movement through the rocky Island. So following the hiking trails, you can access old passages and structures along the way. If you feel confident enough to tour alone, follow informational trail markings. Also, before setting for a self-guided tour, ensure you study the trail map before you visit. Guided tours are highly advised if you are not used to the Hassel Island terrain.

General Information

Hiking through the trails will lead you to ancient ruins situated against a spectacular backdrop. The Hassel Island was formerly at St. Thomas, but was separated from St. Thomas and declared an Island in the 1860s. The attempt to enhance water distribution by digging a channel resulted in the creation of Hassel.

The Island has many buildings, forts, and barracks because of the British activity in the Land. Tourists can access these left behind structures through signpost trails leading to viewing local wildlife, the remains of the oldest steam-powered marine railway, and many more.

Where to Anchor:

The first option is to anchor at Hassel Island then visit other places like Crown Bay Marina. There are many private berths at the North part of the Water Island, but mooring space is limited. At Crown Bay you can find laundry, grocery stores, and free liner dock.
