  • Most beautiful spot on the island to watch the sunset. Breathtaking views of the Atlantic and the Caribbean on either side and lots of space to sit on either benches or the grass. Perfect for a picnic and watching the sunset or just watching the surfers on both sides during the day.
  • Beautifull sunsets, clean area and sanitaries are clean. Fui domingo y habian Artesanias.
  • Great "park" to enjoy breathtaking sunset view! Nice lighthouse too!
  • The view is spectacular no matter where you look! The grounds are well maintained with a photo opportunity everywhere!
  • Great place to go. The green areas are clean but the bathrooms not. I like this place.
