“Spectacular Views”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

From the observation deck you can see many of the islands surrounding St. Thomas. You can also get a birds eye view of Magen's Bay. Lots of souvenirs available for purchase and of course the famous banana daiquiris. Nice cool temperatures are pretty much the norm on mountain top and sometimes it is even fogged in. On the way down you can glimpse great views of the Charlotte Amalie harbor so keep your camera ready.

“A Whole Lot of Meh”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

If you want to see possibly the world's largest warehouse turned into a souvenir shop and enjoy a decent $15 banana daiquiri this is the place for you. We had no idea what this was when he headed up the road, but thats basically all it is. The views are decent enough, perhaps on a clearer day it makes it more worth the while. Otherwise, this is probably a big pass.

“High Above the Island”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The roads leading to this mountain are winding and steep. Luckily, we had a resident who drove us to this attraction. She was able to manuever her Rav4 with ease and it appeared to be effortless for her. It is such an outstanding view! There are many photo opportunities and you just don't want to miss this attraction. The gift shop has numerous souvenirs and food items. It is known for its banana daiquiri, but we refrained from purchasing one. As you exit the shop, you are able to view other islands and the famous Magens Beach from the overlook area.

“Amazing views”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Mountain top is a large combination gift shop, bar, and light food bar. It is hard to get to as it is located high on top of a mountain in an outlying area with only a few roads. If you rent a car, you have to watch the roads carefully as route numbers will change without making a turn. However, once you arrive, the views are amazing as you can see numerous Virgin Islands, and an unobstructed view of Megan's Bay below. The banana daiquiris are really good, and strong. This where the Banana Daquiri was invented, and is their specialty. And if you're looking for any souveniers, this is a great place for that too.
