  • Located at the very end of the road, lies a very old plantation. It's super fun to explore. The sunsets here are epic. The vibes are interesting. Especially while exploring at night, which I'm not even sure is allowed, yet a rush. Just be careful! And respectful!
  • What a tremendous viewpoint, of the island history and the island itself. From the walk up the staircase, to the walk up the hill—it helps to transform you into a distant yesteryear. With so much destruction from hurricanes over the years, this beauty has stood the test of time and is quite a marvel to behold. I highly recommend taking the time to take it in and enjoy.
