Interesting topography with stunted cactus "trees" (opuntia?) and low vegetation. We were lucky enough to see nesting brown boobies, which allowed us to photograph them from about 20 feet. Don't look over the edge of the cliffs if you're afraid of heights! Take water and...More

Always a nice short trip by car. There is a easy walking path to circumnavigate the area. This path also leads to the staircase to visit Peter's Cave, which is only one of the hurricane holes on the island.

Did a loop by hiking the footpath all the way along the bluff to Peters cave. Walked back by the road. The path is pretty rough and you do need to be in closed toed shoes and be in fair shape.

Although this is a beautiful hike, the trail does disappear about half-mile in. We ended up doubling back and taking the road to get back to our pickup spot which, in the dead heat of mid-day, was a bit rough.
