- Legend has it that 16th-century explorer Sir Francis Drake kept watch on his fleet from this vantage point, marked by a seat across the road from the parking area. One of the island's best view points, Drake's Seat affords a panoramic picture of Magens Bay and the United States and British Virgin Islands strung out to the east. A popular stop on round-the-island taxi tours, this place can get crowded. If you visit in the late afternoon, the light is especially entrancing. There is no admission charge.
