What a beautiful spot, sunset was beautiful and you had the opportunity to mix with other travellers. Food was good and also the entertainment. Thought it was a bit expensive for what it was and we had to drive ourselves.

We went to Captain Cooks monument on our final night for a lovely bbq dinner supplied by some of the local people, which was great. The salads were great and Oh my that homemade coconut bread and coconut pudding were to die for.

Again a very well kept and tidy area. A lovely place to have a stroll or take on some long walks if you want. Great views looking out to sea and some huge named rocks near the coast. Read the interesting history of Captain Cook. Great place for some stunning photo shots.

Coastal views from here are absolutely fantastic. It was a still calm day when I was here and I would have loved to have walked the tracks through the national park but as I was with my 76 year old mum who wasn't so keen I didn't end up doing it. Well worth the drive out here.

This is a stunning spot, beautiful coastal views well worth the drive and short walk. Suggest visitors should go when the weather is dry and not windy. Great place to take a picnic.

With a group who enjoyed an evening BBQ with local caterers Don and Maria. Wonderful location, stunning views and lovely sunset. Picnic area is sheltered from the SE trade winds. A bit off the beaten track as far as NI standards go, but worth the drive.

Its hard to pick a favorite spot on the island because there are so many beautiful places. A photo waiting to be taken at every turn, but this was my favorite.

Gorgeous...it took my breath away! What a place to discover...no wonder James Cook thought it was a good idea to build a colony there!
