Kidd Cove in Georgetown


In Georgetown near the main dock and Regatta Point is Kidd Cove.

In the 1700s, pirates roamed the Caribbean. Nassau was the main trading market, but most pirates had a safe harbour where they could rest up, repair ships and maybe bury a little treasure. Kidd Harbour had the natural shelter of Stocking Island and was reportedly Captain Kidd's favourite haunt. The hill overlooking the harbour where the church now stands is called Kidd Hill. He may well have had look outs posted here and on Beacon Hill on Stocking Island. To read the whole Captain Kidd story, the pirate who literally invented burying treasure click here.
