the place is a nice cardio workout going up the slippery steps tho it is risk & scary to do. the view from the top awaits you, but aside from that, nothing much to reward your efforts climbing up. sometimes the path will fork so...More

The highest point on this beautiful island. You can see the whole island from this tower. The roads are good, the air is so very clean and sweet. Forest all around. There is a picnic area.

Finding here was a bit tricky. I have been using google maps with an 85% success rate when downloaded offline, and here was an exception. When you see the butterfly sanctuary, take an immediate sharp right, instead of following the road to the right, easy...More

We hiked the easy way, not the path with the 12 stations of the Cross and climbed the tower to enjoy the view. Alas the trees has growned too tall to get a 360 degree view but we certainly enjoyed the fine wx and the...More
