“"Great Photo Op"”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Cool old building and off the beaten track on Little Exuma Island. It is worth seeing the salt ponds on the way too. Stop at a little beach bar up the hill called "Tropical Breezes"' great food and great people.

“Very Cool”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

An outstanding story and a great view. If you live any where near or have visited the mountains before the walk won't be too hard. Go early in the day because of the heat or in the evening to watch the sunset.

“Must see”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Rent a car for a day and drive here (take drinking water if the weather is hot). Climb the 206 feet to the top of Mt Alvernia. Visit the Stations of the Cross of the one-man built monastery.

“Worth a brief stop, but dont drive to Little Exuma just for that!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Its worth to stop to see while looking at the salt Pilar and learn about the former salt industry, visiting Santana's for lunch, buy some dessert from Mom's and visit Tropic of Cancer beach. Now that's a day!
