Easy stroll around the historical sugar mill ruins. Most of the walk is in the sun, so bring a hat and sunscreen. You can view the many structures including a huge old stone oven all within 15-20min. Little bit of an uphill walk, but short and we'll worth the amazing views. Definitely a must do while on St John.

Worth the stop. Very cool ruin that won't take you more that 20 min to see or stay longer to take photos and take it all in. Many deer roaming the area. Bring a camera as they get really close to you. If you are lucky enough to get parking, walk to Waterlemon Cay to some of the best snorkeling... More

There are many historical places around St. Thomas and St. John, this is definitely worth a stop, the view is amazing, the ruins give you a glimpse into the past. Do bring water, since it gets really hot, specially walking around in the sun. Wear hat and sunscreen, a MUST!

Bring water! We explored on a hot day and my kids (ages 9-16) were melting.... They enjoyed walking around and exploring the ruins, but they needed frequent breaks to cool off. The total time to explore would be 10-30 minutes. The views of the sea are spectacular. Bring your camera!

It is worth a stop to see. It is a self guided tour with placards around to read and tell you what is what. Pretty short so even little children would not loose interest.

Self-paced stroll through ruins; backdropped by BVI and coastline. Beautiful views, as well as descriptions of buildings and structures available.

Fun to visit especially on a drizzly day. Great history and we always see deer when walking up the board walk. Great views so bring the camera.

Most of us tourists don't realize that the VI became economically successful when Sugar Cane was the ONLY source of sugar, molasses and (thank GOD!) rum. Then the chemical process of getting cheap sugar from sugar beets in the late 40's killed that prior industry. The walking tour of this Plantation is a nice step back in time... plus informative....

Saw this as part of the St John's day tour. The plantation ruins was okay, but our tour guide was awesome. The tour was about 4 hours and ended up on trunk bay, which is gorgeous! The ruins were nice to see as part of St John's history, but again was no the highlight of the tour for me.
