Great view!

This was a nice stop. Great views from up here. Large gift shop has pretty good prices and great selection. The banana daquiries were ok but way overpriced.

The view is not that good and they make you walk through a huge souvenir shop to reach the view. Very crowded when ships are in. This is not the top of the mountain as the name implies. Drakes Seat , Mafolie, and Bluebeards offer better views without the crowds and souvenirs

We arrived early enough to beat almost all tour busses. We walked around a bit finding the back patio area and the most incredible view on the island! The prices for the goods seemed fir considering the location. They did sell a few things we didn't see anywhere else. However, you're there for the view of the bay!

While on a cruise, we did decide to take a tour up to this fantastic look-out point. The views are amazing, you can easily spend a good half hour up there. The souvenir shop is just that, another store full of (often) useless trinkets and the usual teeshirt shop. The Banana Daiquiri bar is super expensive. Yes, the tourist crowd... More

This quick trip is quite a ride up curving roads with scenic views. The scene from the top overlooking Megan's Bay is spectacular. The walk through a gigantic retail space is pretty incredible too. Prices are average, nothing out of ordinary though. Haha. Fun couple hours. Bathrooms nice new clean. Our thousand employees.

The view from the top is incredible, but unless you are on a tour, I would not advise driving there yourself. It is a challenge to get to, and honestly, not really worth the trip for the shopping (lots of souvenirs). The draw is definitely the gorgeous view, and maybe a banana dacquari!

We were not going to do any tours off the cruise ship (Carnival Sunshine), so we decided to hop a taxi and see the sights. One person wanted to get a drink at an overlook of Antigua at a food truck that just closed, only in America would they guy not sell him a soda. The taxi driver then took... More

Mountain Top is on the itinerary of most island tours. When you arrive you enter a large souvenir store. Many items can be bought for less in town. Go to the lookout for a magnificent view of Magen's Bay. The bar makes great drinks.

Tourist shop has everything and a small bar. The view is really nice but you are not ontop of the "mountain" so you don't have a 360 degree view as you would expect.
