Situated on the beach

This is an old gold Mill ruin. You can climb around in the building or what's left of it and enjoy the pretty area

This was interesting to me probably because I like history. If you visit do it with a guide he will take you here and many other places great island .

This was a stop from our tour and well worth it. It was awesome. Gorgeous beach and the ruins were phenomenal. Lots of history and beautiful photos of the area, inside and out. I would go again!

Another stop on our day of exploring the island. Very unique locale with a geocache nearby. Not good for those with unsure balance as you are climibing up stone steps to get inside.

This is an interesting stop with a guide. The ruins are cool, but a guide can share the history of the stop and surrounding landmarks. The views from up top are great and the crashing waves below are nice as well.

Rented ATV's (no guide) and explored the island on our own. First stop was the California Lighthouse and then followed the coast down for about 2 hours, making pit stops along the way. This was one of the pit stops. There isn't much to see beyond what you see in the pictures, but it's fun to see all of these... More

We stopped here as part of an off road tour. The history was interesting but there isn't much here. It is okay as part of a tour and the island is small enough to drive to it if someone really wants to see it.
