The journey to the monument was challenging since we decided to take bikes on the 3 mile trip from our resort. The road to the monument is being redone so right now it is full of holes and rocks. When you get closer it changes...More

Easily the most beautiful views on the island. Don’t let goat path of a road deter you. It’s a semi long drive out tonthe point but we saw Ospreys, butterflies, and scenic views all along the narrow dirt road. Once you’re there the views are...More

It is a bit of a trek to get there if you walk from the paved road. Rough road for a regular car. It is worth the trek to get there. The view is amazing.

From the top of the monument, there are great views of the islands and bays. Snorkeling was very good here. Very clear water, lots of stuff to see. Road is very, very rough. Had I known how bad it was, I wouldn't have tried it...More
