Expensive for what you get

Nice viewpoint where apparently the queen has been some time ago, some ruins from the times of the slaves, maybe a historical place for the Seychelles, but not worthy the money for the tourists.

One of the few- if not the only- historical sites in Mahe.

This might be the only site where you can learn about the 1st inhabitants of Seychelles, that were brought to the Island by the French- and the British later- as slaves.
This place was a school operted by the missionaries for the slaves children, and it was built in the mountains away from the authorities eyes.
At the end of the trail there is a beautiful overlook point.

We drove up to see the view right after we arrived in Mahers airport. Was a great way to start the trip to take in the views and get our bearings!

The silence, the forest , the history and mainly, the view! We can see several local flora, especially, the cinnamon tree in its habitat.

This place was officially opened by the Queen of UK in the 1970s. The mission lodge was were local missionaries taught children. From the lodge to the lookout, you will walk along a small trail that has many trees, identifed with their scientific name. All in all a good visit.

Stunning view facilities poor

Make sure the weather is suitable for viewing as it is not worth visiting otherwise. Very basic services and take your own food and drink. Weather critical.

Not so much to see except for the view

The ruins are from a missionary school that was operated 1876-1889. A bit unclear why the stone building are in ruins. Also Queen Elizabeth visited in 1972 and there is a lookout place with a nice view. Marginally better than the nearby Tea Factory.

One can get a beautiful and clear view of the island from here. On the way the trees are clearly labelled and there are a few birds in the area.

Definetely a place to go for all

The place is in the mist forest so the nature is special and the view over the Islands and the ocean is fantastic and it is an historic place for two reasons. 1- Liberated slave children from slave ships were bring there to be educated and care. 2- the Queen of England came to this exact spot to have a cup of tea.
The access is very easy even for old persons.

Worth 10 minutes.

There is some historical information written and a great view with clear things of what you are looking at.

It was interesting to read about the mission and Queen Elizabeth 2nd’s visit.
