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.

We actually went snorkeling at Waterlemon but took a quick walk around the ruins. So nice overlooks to the bay and the ruins were very interesting.

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
