Warning. Unless you like expensive Poorly done BBQ. and extra expensive drinks to go along. Don't waist your money on the Sunday night Experience.

The trip to Shirley heights is part of a three part attraction and includes Nelsons dockyard. The view from the top is worth the ticket price alone $8

After visiting Nelson's Dockyard, the Shirley Heights Lookout offered fabulous views of the ocean and the cliffs. The size of some of the century plants was amazing and several were in bloom.

We really enjoyed it...the sunset was beautiful and the band was great and we met nice people from all over the world. It is very crowded, but we didn't have to wait too long for a drink and it was a friendly, not rowdy group.

The view is magnificent. You can see so far and all the harbor and boats. I am not a fan of crowds, so i avoided the big Sunday night party and took a private tour on Monday while touring the island. Very scenic and recommend it.
