Wallilabou Bay is one of the top places you should not miss when you are in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Aside from its scenic waterfalls, it also preserved the once famous film set of the Pirates of the Caribbean. The location was used in the opening scene of the Curse of the Black Pearl.
Wallilabou Bay is a 25 to 30-minute drive from Kingstown. Some of the taxi drivers will try to rip you off with the fare especially if you don’t know how to bargain. We were offered a price of 125 US at first, but fortunately, we found a cheaper rate for only 80 US, back and forth. We are a group of 5 and they charge per person.
The old film set doesn’t have any entrance fee and you are free to wander around. There are withered equipment and tools found inside the old building, plus a memorabilia of the film’s characters. Wooden boxes, coffins, gallows, guns and cannon balls are few of the remaining props from the movie.
Apart from the film’s retained attractions, the Wallilabou Anchorage has a pirate-themed restaurant overlooking the aquamarine-colored water. We were only there for a quick stop, so we never really had the chance to try their food although the place was a little tempting.
I read from various reviews that there is not much to see in the set anymore since most of the props are rotting away, but being a fan of Capt. Jack Sparrow, I was still pretty psych when I came to the exact spot where he was a few years ago. I was not disappointed at all.
Before going back to Kingstown, the driver was kind enough to bring us to the Wallilabou Heritage Park. It is a park where people can enjoy a small camping trip and a relaxing picnic just beside the waterfalls. We paid 5 EC each for the entrance.
