“Great view, photo op for sure.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Loved the view of the bayamd rolling hills going into the blue ocean.
Hated the small area for parking. If there are two or more tour buses in the area, it's very congested.

“Wow - the view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is one of the most scenic views in the world. It is a must see. Meagan's Bay below is absolutely beautiful. Do not miss this spot.

“Incredible views! Just be careful to pull off the road!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Gorgeous views of Magen's Bay, but don't go on day when cruise ships are in town! Very difficult to pull off the road! Believe what everyone says, but the view is amazing!

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Great photo op of Megan's Bay and the surrounding island. Nice area to pull over and take a pic! We found it by accident and found out later it actually had a name. Worth the drive and you'll pass it on your way to Megan's Bay.

What a view! Don't know much about Drake but a man gave us a visual tour while I tried to hug my wife.
