  • Easy to get to, there are few parking spots but that wasn't an issue as people come and go quickly. Beautiful view inland. Sometimes we forget to look at the center of the island because of all of the drama going on on the shore line.
  • Fabulous views of Taro Farms, sugarcanes, just off the side of the road down in the valley. Parking can be a chore when it's busy. Go early in the morning, and it's much better. Also, look off in the distance for the waterfalls. They are spectacular!

  • It was a bit of a drive on some roads that are subject to landslides, but its worth the trip. I think it is always misty, and is about the wettest place on the islands so make sure that you have a brolly or rain coat with you. It's also a chance to see the falls from Fantasy Island, which is pretty cool. It is quite windy and cod thigh, so be prepared for a big weather change from lower on three island
