It contains a small map as well as detailed information on the geology, ecology and history of Pigeon Island. Guided tours led by our experienced tour guides can also be arranged. The Landmark opens from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily (8:30 am to 6:30 pm – July to September). No reservations are required. However if you would like a guided tour, it is advisable that you call at least one day prior to your visit to make the arrangement.
