  • Input is paid $1 per adult and 1 for parking, half of the parking lot is under the shade of the trees and the other half in the Sun. The restaurant is neat, but live music is very strong, not can chat with the family without shouting loudly, dn Gil restaurant or something service is lousy, it took much to deliver a couple of soups, and prices through the roof in comparison to what they offer. The boat ride was pleasant, we visited the hermit Island, and we climb up to the lookout point and then back, the trip cost$ 25 for our family group.
