  • Amazing views and Taino Petroglyphs! The views are amazing and you can keep walking to see 7 arches. The beaches are beautiful. Parking is alongside the road or you can pay $10 a person and park...

  • Volcanic rocks on the ocean front. The views are mesmerizing from the top. Hiking shoes are a must as the rocks are ridged with sharp edges. I used hiking poles that made it easy. I would advise you.....  more

  • You need to bring sneakers that are good with rocks. Amazing views and only 5 dollars to enter. Do not expect a tour person you will be exploring on your own.
  • Views are amazing but it’s quiet dangerous once you get to the tops. We walked about 90 minutes and didn’t get to see all the arches, only made it to the private beach. Good news is once on the private beach there was a 3 minute shortcut to make it back to the parking. If you go, I suggest to go in good shoes, with enough water and food so you don’t have to return halfway.
