You can see Saint Kits from this location. It is a great place to take pictures. Also, allows you to see all the wealthy houses on the road.

Nice heritage. Quite place to relax have a picnic or out with family and friends. Cool to see what they had to endure long time ago to protect the island. A must see when on St. Eustatius.
