This site is well worth a visit. The views from the top over Nelsons harbour are stunning. The sea colours amazing. Unfortunately didn’t go on party night which gives us an excuse to return. A site not to be missed

Well worth a visit just for the view over Nelson's Dockyard, and the Caribbean Sea & Atlantic Ocean. This was on a tour from P&O Britannia, and a little longer there would have been desirable.

Yes you can stop there. There is a charge if you go on an evening that is set up with a BBQ and steel band, but that's only in the evening the rest of the time it's free
