  • Very nice view from this point. Easy access all the way to the top by car. The view from there is gorgeous. You can go there by foot or bike as well, there is a couple of trails going through a magnificent nature, although if it has rain before, that might be challenging...
  • Really great place to have a look over the island. The way up is curvy so you have to drive carefully. Although the weather was not so good we had a perfect view over the island. Can really recommend it!
  • A must see! You can drive up here and just chill with fresh coconut ❤ If you decide to hike higher, you will enjoy alone time in a stunning environment.
  • Nice total new road, also small car can do it. Parking for cca. 10 cars for free. Starting point for cycling and hiking tours.
  • Beautiful view. The hiking trail Is well marked though seems to be removed in the rainy season as it’s very muddy. I drove up, took some pics, tried to hike a little to the first lookout on the trail and after slipping many times and getting my shoes dirty, went back to the car. Very touristy of course.
