This ruins are right across from the parking lot for Cinnamon Bay Beach and the park service has made them handicap accessible. There are also signs about explaining the building and their purpose in the sugar making process. Also the ruins are the starting point for the lovely Cinnamon Bay Trail.

Not much to see and no parking spots at this venue. An easy Boardwalk hike that takes less than 20 minutes to complete.

The ruins are part of a half mile long, loop nature trail. Totally in the shade and up a rocky hill. Lots to see and easy to follow the trail. Just look for the signs. I was surprised to see the crypts of a Danish family who perished on the island. Extensive ruins and in decent shape. Definitely worth a... More

Our son got married on the morning of May 21, 2016, on Hawksnest. Wonderful wedding and then we went all along the North Shore, stopping to take photos in her dress. These ruins made great backdrops. The saddest part is that the 2 SD cards from the days before the wedding and the actual wedding, got dropped out of my... More

Our family enjoyed seeing this site. It was very interesting and educational. We also met a gentleman in the back working the grounds who educated us on different uses for coconut, coconut oil and herbs he grows.

The ruins are a self-guided tour. There are some plaques that denote the history of the buildings, and what took place where. It was perfect for an early morning walk to enjoy the cool of the morning in the shade.

These are super easy to get to by car or by hike. It's right next to the road and has some extensive ruins.

This place was fun and definitely worth a visit. The entire trail takes about 30 minutes and the beach is directly across the street. Visiting made for a fun day. Check it out!

These historic sugar mill ruins are worth a visit. Well placed placards explain the goings on there at the time it was in operation. Well put together and an easy hike, not too strenuous.
