Totally worth the drive up this lookout. There is parking and a short walk on an informative trail takes you to a magnificent view of the Ocean. North Coast shoreline and mountain range of the Mahe island.

If you are in the area, it is definately worth a visit. Wonder around the remains of the childer slaves shelter and walk to the edge of the cliff for incredible views of the island. Buy a refreshment from the nice lady there and feel like you are on the top of the world!!!

Very beautiful views. This is easy to get to and the walk from the car park is very short. Very interesting history.

The view is magnificent: is probably the highest spot in Mahe and you have a great view. The history too is fascinating with the Mission being built to teach the children of the newly free slaves. Lots of information regarding the trees around and the fact that Marianne North was there painting trees and flowers is very interesting. Really worth... More

It can hardly be called a trek if you are going by car. Its a 5 step walk from the parking. The view from the top is breathtaking. You can just sit there for an hour looking at the beautiful view.

Easy to access even under a rain of December. Historical site of Seychelles. Beautiful view on the mountains, forest and islands on the sea. There are a lot of guided tour but it's enough to wait a little bit and after you will have the lodge alone. Feel that moment!

Besides the magnificent views on a clear day the short walk gives some insight into the history of the Seychelles.

Go this place just for the view and a but of history. Once done continue a bit on the road to drink from the water source, the only mineral and clean water to drink
