Continuing down towards the sea from New River, you can follow the goat trail to Coconut Walk, which was named for the luxuriant coconut trees that once lined its borders. It was once densely cultivated with sugarcane, but like other Estates, it owners had to change its crop due to the deterioration in sugar price and were later forced to sell the estate.

Significant pieces of pottery have revealed that this was an early Arawak Indian settlement. Among the ruins is the tallest windmill in Nevis and a stone lime kiln, where coral is fired to produce lime used in the local construction industry. It adds colour, luster, durability, and extra bonding to the finished plaster on concrete building. It is still used today.
