This place has great views of the sea and capital, you can see cruise ships coming and going. Also it's a nice place for a picnic plus a historical site.

This was my first visit and it truly is a beautiful location especially for weddings, picnics or photo shoots. Just being able to go and absorb the view is a blessing. A must see.

views are absolutely stunning but please only visit in mid afternoon and do not go alone, unfortunately due to the crime both in Trinidad and overseas all potential thieves will see opportunities if you go alone

Very scenic. Breathtaking landscape of Scarborough and environs. There is a museum that catalogs the rich history of the island of Tobago.
