Best place to catch a sunset! There is a bar and restaurant, although we haven't tried the restaurant yet. We've made the trek up the mountain a few times, and it never ceases to amaze!

The highest point on the island and the place to go for both panoramic views and the sunset. Also the place to go on Sunday afternoons when they have a festival with food, bands, and cocktails

The view from Shirley Heights is spectacular. The Sunset is best I have seen so far. The music and food is also spectacular. We had a great time both times we were there.
