I love it because the view is nice
It's the most beautiful view I have ever seen in my life, yet haunting. I can never get enough of the view. It's mesmerising. Love it..!
Lovely place for lovers
Breathtaking view of the surrounding coastline from 1,700 ft., with a simple but interesting history. Includes the Yardley Chase lighthouse. Well maintained facilities, pleasant and helpful staff. The guided tour can come across as scripted, but that's the nature of guided tours sometimes. Relatively easy to find (after leaving the main road from Mandeville to Santa Cruz) thanks to visible and well place signs. Ironically, the least helpful and least visible sign is the one at attraction entrance. That journey is a small sample of the regular life or small farmers who can often be seen tending their crops and going about their daily business.. A camera is required (not officially, but you might regret not having one). Worth a visit, at least once in a lifetime.
