“Definitely make the trip to the very North end of the island!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

It'd be a bit of a bike ride, and was a decent moped ride (10 minutes) out to the very North End of the island where the Settler's Rock is, but make the trip b/c its worth it.

The rock is cool to look at, but the beach / nature preserve there is also beautiful, and if you walk the whole length, there's a lighthouse at the end of it. Nice place to hang out for a while once you get there.

“Interesting with amazing views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

To think that settlers arrived here with their cows swimming behind was amazing to learn, gives a new perspective on original settlers.

“long ride but do the light house also.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Ok to look at combine with the walk to lighthouse. Younger groups loved the name of the 9th person to land at that spot on the island.I would suggest scooter car or bike, walking will take a while to get there.

“Great bike ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We rented beach cruiser bikes from Moped Man and rode out to Settler's Rock - gorgeous view of the ocean and North Lighthouse. Wonderful and worth it!
