A rugged road will lead you by foot, bicycle or sturdy car to the point of first landing by Columbus. Inspiring to imagine our history from the first footsteps on this mound. Extend your visit by walking over a small pathway to acres of untouched white sand beach and still waters for fly fishing, lounging, snorkelling, swimming. A magical place... More

Rough road to get there but worthwhile. Interesting that the marker commemorates both Columbus and the islanders he was ultimately responsible for eliminating. Beautiful spot, nice beaches.

Very nice panoramic views from the top near the monument. The monument itself could use a few repairs. Not a place I would seek out unless you have nothing better to do.

Not the easiest place to drive to, it's all dirt road and very bumpy so be careful with a rental car. However once you arrive you'll find a tale of two waters. Climb the staircase and you'll overlook the Atlantic side as well as the protected inland flats. The large monument that marks Columbus third landing in the new world... More

The sign marking the road to the monument could be more instructional. The road is treacherous and hard on rental vehicles. It should be fixed more often with added gravel and filling in the gullies. The destination is amazing however!

Amazing view once you arrive! The road back takes some maneuvering around rocks and dips. Wish we had a Jeep!

Make sure your car is up to it for a very rocky mile or two from the main road. Once there the walk to the monument is steep but short. Nice monument honouring the indigenous peoples of Long Island(Lucayans or Arawaks?) which I believe Columbus persecuted mercilessly after being welcomed. The view out to sea is nice from the top...

The monument is cool, but the road up to is is atrocious. It sits right at the end of the island on a bluff. Great views from the top.

Visited during spring break, ONLY people there. The road to it is sketchy, but hey, you're driving a rental car anyway. Go slow, make sure your tires go over the highest points so you you don't knock a hole in your oil pan. It's about 2 miles of bad road, but worth it. Even a tree to park under at... More

We visited over Easter and arrived by bicycle. Rough road with loose rock, moderately difficult ( our 12 year old had no problem, but be warned if not in shape ). The view is incredible, with beautiful white cliffs. We did not see another person, even as we explored for 2 hours. Multiple view points and beautiful water. We walked... More
