  • Really interesting to learn about the history that took place here, while also taking in the absolutely stunning views! Easy walk up from the road, too.
  • Nice spot with historic significance. Nearby Leinster Bay has beautiful waters. From across the bay, several British Virgin Islands can be seen easily on a clear day.

  • Very little to see but good views to take some photos. Watch out for mosquitoes and bees.
  • There are lots of ruins on the island but this one is one of the best preserved with signage telling of the history.
