  • Awesome place and totally worth checking out. Lots of trails to get down to the water. Best $2 you can spend on the island. We went during the week and in the morning, less traffic and cooler...

  • You gotta visit this place if you come to the island. Don’t eat at the restaurant there though, super bland food. Enjoy your walk through the ruins and sea wall then head back into town for delicious food.
  • Beautiful views, good breeze. Nice walking trails. Recommend shoes, not sandals. Don't forget your water it's deceptively warm once over the rocks. Pack in pack out.
