Drake’s Seat

Drake's Seat was built in 1933, when everyone had to navigate the island by horse or on foot. To this day it remains the most popular vantage point, only rivalled by the Skyline Drive Overlook. Stop here for a short while and enjoy the panoramic view of Magen’s Bay, surrounded by green rolling hills and with a scattering of colourful houses.
