bvinpt@bvinationalparkstrust.org
Established in 1974     |    Area: 48 acres The island of Fallen Jerusalem is 48 acres and is comprised of beautiful coastal vegetation and strewn with enormous boulders, similar to those found at The Baths. Declared a Bird Sanctuary in 1959, because of its importance as a sanctuary for several species of birds. The endangered red-billed tropic bird finds refuge on the island. In addition, Fallen Jerusalem is an important nesting site for seabirds such as the brown boobies, laughing gulls, noddies and brown pelicans, along with sandwich, royal and bridled terns. Secluded beaches border delightful snorkelling areas; North Lee Bay beach being the best on the island. On the northwest shore, underwater tunnels and caves are a haven for nocturnal fish, while schools of glassy sweepers glisten like bits of shiny copper. Overnighting is not encouraged, as there is no safe, overnight anchorage.
