**Deep Bay Wreck & Fort Barrington**
Deep Bay is an arched beach that’s great for a swim. It is the perfect spot to spend a relaxing day on the beach. If you are on a boat this is a perfect bay to throw your anchor as it is well protected from the rough seas.
This is also a great beach for snorkelling – a wreck lies in the middle of the bay, the Andes, a barque from Trinidad that sank nearly 100 years ago when its cargo of pitch caught fire. Its mast pokes out of the water at times and you can snorkel round it pretty easily.
You can take a short 10 minutes hike to Fort Barrington that sits on the northern end of the bay. The fort used to protect the southern approach into St. John’s. The fortifications that you see today date back to about 1779.
