Great at night!

These ruins are some of the more intact ruins on the island. We have gone both da and night and found the night time visit to be very cool!

These were our favorite ruins on the island! Easily accessible (right off of Centerline Road), no crowds, and you can explore inside the buildings! Being under the windmill felt like discovering a hidden room with Indiana Jones, and being able to climb inside the mill was great, too! We visited at sunset, which was stunning, as the doorway frames the... More

Ah, history... I stood amongst the ruins and could feel what life was like for the slaves that worked this mill. History is not always pretty, but the remnants of this history mill, are certainly worth the hike.

Just off of Centerline Road, the main route across the island, yet it could be a million miles away. We drove past Highway 206 several times before I decided to go off-road and check it out. So glad I did. Soon as you get 500 ft up the hill you run into Catherineberg Ruins and they are spectacular! What's left... More

This set of ruins is amazing. No crowds like Annaberg ruins. The craftsmanship of the buildings is to be admired. We spent over an hour wandering the grounds and not one other person showed up to check them out. These are not to be missed.

Can you imagine all the man hours digging, carting, stacking all these lava stones...backbreaking work for months, if not years. Eerie place, felt the souls that were there all those many years ago.

Catherineberg ruins is off the beaten path. Recommend a 4WD vehicle especially if you continue over the mountain from route 10 to 20. The ruins are is awesome condition and we took a bunch of pictures. Too bad it is not more publicized. definitely recommend a visit!

Drove out with directions from the web. Found them easy if you drive on 10 towards Coral Bay and when you see the Virgin Island National Park sign make a left. Go up a very bumpy road a short distance and there they are. They are in pretty good shape compared to the others.

Well, I finally drove my wife and another couple to see Catherineberg Ruins. It is not easy to find off Centerline Road, there are no signs to the site, If you can imagine it is between Cinnamon Bay and Centerline Road off of John Head Road, which you can only see if traveling from Cruz Bay side. It is actually... More

We were exploring the island and came upon these ruins in the woods. There was no explanation of what they were so we had to search for the info after we got back. The ruins were in great shape and very interesting trying to figure our what all the spaces were used for. It would have been even better if... More
