As you drive around the island there are many places for photo opp's, however there is one place that always guarantee a perfect picture postcard view.
Head to the Hills for a Stop at Mountain Top
Visiting the highest point on the island is a must do! At 1,500 feet above sea level Mountain Top offers awesome views of Magen's Bay and Drake Passage.
On a clear day the outlying islands of the British Virgin Islands are in full view - there's a handy sign to assist in identifying the BVI islands.
Located at a bend in the road, Drake's Seat is a bench named after British privateer Sir Francis Drake who reportedly used the bay as an anchorage point.
Mountain Top is also known as the birthplace of the
infamous Banana Daiquiri
Another view from Mountain Top is Peterborg, a peninsula which separates Magens Bay from the Atlantic ocean
