Really not worth the taxi fare. Just tee shirts , some trinkets and rum. Mountain Top was part of a 2 hr taxi tour we took . After 5 minutes we asked our driver ( who by the way was wonderful Ira Smith I recommend him ) to get us outta here . Spend your time somewhere else not here... More

We tried three times to find this place on our own driving before we finally found it, but every taxi driver on the island knows right where it is. It is at the highest point on the island and has the best view of Magens Bay ever. In short, it is a huge gift shop which I loved! Prices are... More

This stop was included in a shore excursion we took through Princess cruises. While I enjoyed the tour, this stop was the most disappointing. It's a huge gift shop located at the altitude of 1500 ft, with a wonderful view. It was the typical gift shop stuff-bunch of t-shirts and stupid souvenirs, some jewelry, liquor, and a bar. We were...

Great view of Magen's bay. Banana daquaries were good but not best. Other than that, just a large gift shop. Glad we were able to drive there ourselves as any paid tour to visit not likely worth it. Equally many other great places with views

You can get the best banana daiquiri you will ever have have in your life! Lots of souvenirs of every kind. Now the challenge is getting here if you are driving yourself. But hey, it's vacation. Get lost. Experience something new! Fabulous view and great welcoming staff.

The gift shop may have the most reasonable prices on the island. They have a large variety if items from clothing to rings. Some snack foods and drinks. The banana daiquiri was very tasty. There is a nice view from the balcony. The balcony is not a sit and relax type balcony. It is a stand and look at the... More

Stunning views of the BVIs and the best drink of my holiday. Banana daquiris probably from authentic recipe. Not the usual simple frozen concoction. Slightly more pricey but worth it. Enjoy your drink as you enjoy stunning views of Magens bay and surrounding islands.

I have been coming to Mountain Top to buy my "island trip Tshirt" since I was born in 1974! Generously included in any "two hour tour" by island taxi's if you take them. Must do: Banana Daiquiri at the bar!

Terrifying ride up to the place, got there just before closing. So basically, it's a glorified gift shop. But the view is spectacular and the $11 banana daiquiri is delicious. You're on vacation, why not?
