The ruins are pretty neat, but in all honesty, not super interesting for my son (9). After we looked around for about 15 minutes, we were ready to move on. However, the scenery around the mine is gorgeous. There is a wishing rock area in...More

Gold mill ruins is a nice place to explore and take pictures, with the ocean in the background. Popular place, so if you want solitude, get there early in the day, before the tour groups, buses, buggies all show up.

Great photo opportunities and some rock climbing and exploring within the ruins. Deserted end of the island with ocean views. The ruins have an ancient feeling but were built 1872. Food truck on site for beverages and food. Same road as the Natural Bridge.

Majestic site and ocean view! UTV is an excellent way to experience the ruins. By the time we got there we were already covered in dirt but it was absolutely stunning!
