The most accessible and best preserved of its type, this once-working sugar plantation (circa 1870) was the site of boiling molasses and hardworking slaves harvesting sugarcane, and which now offers visitors regular tours and living-history demonstrations.

The Annaberg ruins have been well maintained and provide a glimpse into the days when sugar was king on St. John. A nice feature was the cook house, where samples of Johnny Cake with jams and jellies, and a cooler of the local soft drink...More

We hiked thru these ruins and then continued hiking to Waterlemon Cay. The ruins were very interesting with good signage.

Park at Leinster Bay and you don't have much of a Hike. Pit toilet and a few stairs but worth the views. You can see several islands. We even saw a gentle deer there.

Actually the island is peppered with old buildings which date back to the Dutch Ownership of the island. Many seem unacceptable as the only means of transportation 100 years ago would have likely been by mule. Annaberg is a jewel for those of us which...More

Close to the parking lot, with some stairs and mild elevation gain (you could be dropped off to avoid the stairs) - it was a interesting visit. We were at this parking lot for the Leinster Bay Trail, but tagged the ruins on at the...More

Annaberg is one of the better preserved and maintained historical sites on the island. Here you can see and explore what remains of an old sugar plantation. Trails are mostly paved, so it is accessible to most people. Up near the windmill there is a...More

This place has gorgeous views and the ruins are so awesome to walk around!! I would highly recommend this short detour to see this place! It does have a short walk with steps so it may be difficult for people with limitations.

Yes. Actually you can only do self guided tours. Park at the lot or in the side of the road and take the stairs up. Half an hour will do. Bring snorkelling gear and do Marys Creek which is in front of the parking lot, where... More
