I don't think the nearby resorts offer excursions to this location any longer, so you'll need to get there on your own. But when you do, you'll likely have the place all to yourself. Bring a camera to capture the incredible vista from the top...More

We visited the monument in late July. The climb up to the monument was minimal at best. View is amazing and well worth the trip. The entire area is definitely worth spending at least an afternoon exploring. What a beautiful island.

A short hike up the path and the views you encounter at the top are absolutely breathtaking. I cannot say enough about the colors of the sea in Bahamas out-islands. Simply gorgeous!

We borrowed single gear bikes from our hotel and rode the difficult sandy double-track to this monument - called the Columbus Monument, but really it commemorates the native people who were harmed by Columbus. We were glad to see that it made history real!
