  • Really nice viewpoint across to St Kitts and Nevis as well as of the White Wall. If you have a car it’s worth driving out there.  more »
  • Amazing views of the ocean and other close islands. We went several different times of the day and it changes. Went on a full moon night and it was stunning. Peaceful to sit on the wall.  more »
