The Mission Lookout is an interesting historical place to visit. The view from the lookout point is beautiful but there are many other great look out spots. If you are in the area definitely go and check it out but it’s not a must see.
Great views across the island but the ruins are minimal. Stop and take a look if you hire a car and are passing but I wouldn’t personally recommend making a specific bus or taxi ride to visit. There is information about the site to understand...More
The site itself is well taken care of, but there is not much to see. The weather was cloudy when we visited, so we could not see the scenery from the lookout. If you are already in the area hiking around, it is a good...More
This is an unmissable crossing of the island with spectacular views and it's easy to drive past the Venn's Town Mission sign without going in but you'll be rewarded if you do. Beautiful views and interesting history and some ruins of the mission to educate...More

I did not drive myself and didn't visit all of the island, but of the roads on which I did travel, it didn't look too hard, especially compared to a large city like Dubai. Note that they do drive on the other side of the road, British-style, so that would be different and take some adjusting. Some roads are a bit narrow and windy as you would expect. Otherwise the island is small enough and the road system pretty simple so you wouldn't get lost. And other drivers seemed pretty courteous unlike many drivers in the UAE. Having a car would definitely allow you to explore more of the beautiful island and not constrain you to one area.
