The most accessible and best preserved of its type, this once-working sugar plantation (circa 1870) was the site of boiling molasses and hardworking slaves harvesting sugarcane, and which now offers visitors regular tours and living-history demonstrations.

Close to the parking lot, with some stairs and mild elevation gain (you could be dropped off to avoid the stairs) - it was a interesting visit. We were at this parking lot for the Leinster Bay Trail, but tagged the ruins on at the...More

Annaberg is one of the better preserved and maintained historical sites on the island. Here you can see and explore what remains of an old sugar plantation. Trails are mostly paved, so it is accessible to most people. Up near the windmill there is a...More

This place has gorgeous views and the ruins are so awesome to walk around!! I would highly recommend this short detour to see this place! It does have a short walk with steps so it may be difficult for people with limitations.

This place was an unexpected surprise. We went over to St Johns for the day to just explore and walked up to these beautiful ruins! Very informative and gorgeous views from the top. Highly recommend!

Get a little snack and a drink at the cookhouse. A couple days a week there is a God who gives you some good directions. There is also someone attending a garden which is beautiful. This is a must visit.

We visited the old ruins which were greatly interesting to my history loving family. The sad history of slavery is such a tragedy. The snorkeling here in the bay was really great and we saw a turtle, Rey, barracuda, many parrotfish and so many other...More

We were staying on St. Thomas and took the ferry to St. John. We then hired a "safari" type open air vehicle to take us on a tour. There was a very steep climb but well worth it. Was very impressed with the sugar plantation....More

We stopped here as part of an island tour from a cruise ship. It is quite a steep hill to walk up. There are signs so you can read some of the history. Good views looking out to sea. Worth a stop.

I think the best part about this set of ruins is the amazing view out on Leinster Bay and Watermelon Cay. The ruins are the site of historical reenactments. They make bread and do other traditional plantation activities. Also they have barriers up everywhere to...More

Yes. Actually you can only do self guided tours. Park at the lot or in the side of the road and take the stairs up. Half an hour will do. Bring snorkelling gear and do Marys Creek which is in front of the parking lot, where... More
