We drove up here late afternoon to check it out for the Thursday bbq (which sadly we did not make). The views are stunning and the history of the place is so interesting. We didn’t eat or drink here but was worth going for the...More

Worth going here for the views alone and being blunt there isn’t much else to do there!! Apparently there is a party there every Sunday but no doubt that would be full of whooping Americans seeing who could be the loudest!

Been here in Sunday evening for the BBQ and music event. Admittance fee 10 USD p.p. Food was average - vouchers to be bought at the bar. Rum punches strong as expected - be aware ! Music was great ,

Beautiful setting, and fun with locals. Great music and energy. Wear your dancing shoes! You will have people walking around and selling their wares, but I didn't find anyone too pushy. Don't forget to take your camera for sunset pictures.

The view from this look out point takes your breath away. We went on a Sunday night (got a taxi up there), there were literally hundreds of people and you had to fight your way to the bar. There was a steel pan band playing,...More
