The most accessible and best preserved of its type, this once-working sugar plantation (circa 1870) was the site of boiling molasses and hardworking slaves harvesting sugarcane, and which now offers visitors regular tours and living-history demonstrations.

My family enjoyed this stop on our island taxi tour. Awesome ruins and great views. Unfortunately, the National Park Service does not spray for mosquitoes...and there was quite a bit of swampy areas on the way. So, we cut our visit short to avoid getting eaten alive.

Great place to visit with marvelous scenery. Volunteer guides friendly and knowledgeable. Cook shack operator, where drinks and bread are complimentary, was a rude. With her back turned to me when I entered the shack and asked a question about the naming of the bread (dumb bread), her response was "and a good afternoon to you also". Okay, I got... More

This was probably the most preserved ruins on the island. I preferred the ruins on the reef bay hike, but this set of ruins had many more buildings. The views from the ruins were also good. There were a few picnic tables so you could have a little picnic here. Parking was easy for our rental car, there were also... More

We took a drive up here on Christmas Day and were pleasantly surprised. We managed to grab a parking space and toured the ruins for almost an hour. The plantation itself is very beautiful and the views of the BVIs are spectacular. It is a short hike up from the parking lot but the views are totally worth it.

After plenty of beach time, we took the short drive up to the plantation ruin for a look. We got there around 1:30 and easily found a spot in the parking lot. We spent around 30 minutes strolling around the grounds, reading the historical markers and imagining what life was like on that spot 200 years ago at the height... More

We tooka safari taxi out to Annaberg Estate. We walked all over the Estate it was very very interesting. We read all the information signs. It has some great views out the BVI.

Lovely ruins with the gorgeous water as a background. This is worth the stop. There are other sites connected to the sugar plantation within the national park also. The Virgin Islands National Park is worth a visit. It offers lush vegetation, striking views, mangrove forests with giant termite nests (interesting to view from a vehicle), ruins, and possibly the world's... More

I saw this site as part of a tour of the island. It's not large, but you could spend 10 to 45 minutes looking around. There are guides onsite, and they are happy to chat. I'm glad I didn't make a special trip to see it, but as part of my larger tour, it was worth the stop. No cost... More
