Serene surrounding and good view but not spectacular. There are ruins of the historic buildings with a bit of history. It is a nice visit if you have extra time but not a must.

A winding drive up the mountainside takes you to Mission Lodge, an old school established in the 1800s to educate the children of liberated Africans. There aren't many buildings left to see, just a few old stone ruins, but a short stroll through the forest...More

It is worth for the view. The mission's ruins are close to nothing. You get a little history about the education of the children of freed slaves.

This very still and serene part of the island offers some fantastic views on a clear day. There are big local fruit trees and bleeding trees with massive roots. It can get quite cool up here.

I go to this place every March, why because me and my husband got married there, and its only every March, as its pretty far from town. But ill always cherish this place. :)
