great picture picture stop especially Magans bay but the drinks are overpriced and it appears most of business is selling souvenirs, owners must have seen "Field of Dreams" " build it and they will come"

The drinks are great and the view is superb. Also so many souvenirs to chose from. It's a must see and place to visit. Friendly staff.

As others have said this is basically a big tourist gift shop, but the views are amazing! However, it was a very good gift shop with a really good selection, including cigarettes and alcohol. We also were also brought here by Gumb's taxis and our guide Hodgie was fantastic and very knowledgable.

This is a a tourist trap in all senses of the phrase....

The view is pretty good, some great opportunities to get some great shots on your camera.

Now for the not so good news...

You have to walk through a tourist store (twice) (once to get to the view and again to get out), full of overpriced items you can get for half the price in the market place.

Don't make the mistake of buying something here unless you want to get ripped off.. Milky Way Candy bars are $2 each !!

Also don't think the "We welcome American Express cards here" actually means anything....

They had a minimum transaction amount of $10 - fair enough thats up to the store.... However when your purchased is only $10, some how your Credit Card does not work.... hint here folks watch for the "slow swipe" of your card going through the scanner... your going to be told - "Your Card is not working" - try like we did with another card and surprise.... "Your Card is not working" - don't worry folks - they are just looking to get hard cash and avoid paying transaction fees on the credit card - Your Card(s) will work fine everywhere else.

My suggestion to you is keep your head down as you "run" through the store - enjoy the view - take as many pictures as you want and "run" back out....

The view from the Mountaintop is spectacular! You can see the nearby islands as well as a beautiful view of Magen's Bay. Other than that, not worth going there. I wouldn't make a special trip there just to shop for souvenirs as you can find the same things in Charlotte Amalie. I didn't care for their "World Famous Banana Daiquiris" either.
