This area is the highest point in North Andros, situated on the northeast coast at the tip of the island. It provides a spectacular view of the Northeast, Northwest Providence channels, and the Tongue of the Ocean, transitioning from the deep blue to the light turquoise of the lagoon separated by the Andros Great Barrier Reef.

It is named from the famous buccaneer/pirate, Sir Henry Morgan. He used this high vista perch to orchestrate the capture of French and Spanish galleons loaded with new world treasures heading to Europe. It is said that he hid the spoils from his plunder in the caves found in this area.

The beach is great for picnicking and swimming, particular for families with children, because the water is shallow and calm.
