The legend of Lovers Leap is based around the romance of two slaves who, to prevent separation from each other, jumped from a 1750 ft cliff.
Located east of Treasure Beach, Lovers Leap is a sheer 1750-foot cliff overhanging the sea. The legend associated with the site is that during the days of enslavement two young lovers used to meet secretly on the adjoining Yardley Chase Plantation. The owner wanted the female for himself and arranged to have her lover sold. Not wanting to be separated, the two hand in hand leapt and plunged to their death.
