Nice, not easy to go, but we made it with four children. It was a rainey days, so we can't go to the lagoon.

The view is amazing but you will be climbing using feet and hands to get there. It can also be muddy, don't go after rain. It hadn't rained when I went and I still got covered in red mud and stains. Defiantly take water with...More

You have to work to see this place but it’s worth it. Try to do it early to miss the queue of people climbing and wear appropriate footwear - trainers or hiking shoes ideal but failing that, ho barefoot. Thongs/flip-flops/Sandals are not recommended. The view...More

The view point was beautiful and a much easier hike if you don't want to climb all the way down to the lagoon.

It's a steep, dirty and challenging hike as you scale a clay mountain to get to the top. IMO the hike was well worth the view, but it did leave our legs shaky. We are athletic people and a few hours after the hike we...More

Seems tough in the beginning, mas is worthless. The view is awesome and the experience is really good. Do it with proper shoes because it’s slippery.

Definitely worth the treck up to the viewpoint if you're also heading down to the lagoon, ( make sure it's high tide!) but the view is wall to wall hotels now, so don't expect the 20 year old view in the photo

Railey is very easy to walk around. There is maps and sign posts along the way. We did both sides and saw some breathtaking views. We did not do the lagoon since it looked unsafe to climb. Go venture and see all the caves. The...More
