This is a quaint little memorial just off of Higgs beach. There are a lot of great columns with interesting information about the Africans who inhabited the island and of African culture. Worth a stop on your way to the beach,

I enjoyed checking this place out with my nephews. This island is rich in history and this is a definite stop to learn more about what lives were a part of it.

It's a quick stop, but worth doing. The plaques are informative and well done. It's an easy bike ride from the Duval Street area.

The history and the quotations that the plaques around this cemetery have written on them were very informative and had emotional power as well.
