This sight offers a spectacular 270 degree costal view of over the northern part of the island. Worth stopping by when you Re close but not worth driving to from the other side of the island.

Love the view here. Nice coastal views all around . Quiet and breezy. Slowly walk up to the viewpoint hut and take in the view and the sea breeze.

From this lookout point you can see the narrowest point of the island, which is only 200 metres wide. One side is the Pacific Ocean and the other side is the East China Sea. NIce views. Few people when we were there.

It was a relaxing drive from the airport to this observatory, which sits on top of a mountain. The views of the ocean and mountains were spectacular. There were plenty of opportunities for picture taking. A must visit!

We were recommended to visit this view point by the waitress in Cafe MOANA where we’d had lunch. It wasn’t far and well worth it. Lovely views of sea and mountains and good vegetation well tended. Not far from the airport.

It's far away from the downtown; about 50 minutes drive or so. Not recommended for those who travel without a car. It is literally in the middle of nowhere. The place is mainly for sightseeing as there are not many activities you can participate in....More
