Driving through the state park is a beautiful, fun experience. The view from the lookout at the top of the mountain is amazing. The trail is somewhat rough, however, and a 4x4 vehicle is necessary.

The island is fascinanting, has really good beaches and restaurants. The park is worth visiting. The best way to get there is by ship (there are many companies that offer this). Nature not damaged at all
