There are crowds on a weekend and holidays. But it is a nice place to view the Taj Hotel and generally the ocean. We took a boat ride, which was ok.

It is a nice structure. Good spot to take pictures. Use pano if you can. What a long walk to get to the gateway from our car. Walked around the gateway to get best angles for shoot.
