More From South Point

Despite being one of the more dangerous and windiest spots on the island, the South Point remains also one of the most beautiful.

The vistas out to sea, of the coastline and across the bay to the mainland of Cancun are awe inspiring. An added bonus is how nice they have fixed the whole place up now. It really is a pleasant place to stop, walk around and take a few pictures.

Like this one. Fallen in cliff edges, blues so vibrant they make you suck in your breath and the horizon stretching out to forever.

What would a visit to South Point be without the obligatory pictures of the native denizens?

My brother-in-law has been in a wheelchair since he was the victim of a drunk driver back in the 1970's. I guess that made me overlt aware of handicap accessibility issues. I am glad to see that Mexico as a whole is finally starting to address this issue. The newly remodeled South Point is no exception.

I think this extra headdress thing on the lighthouse must be new. At least I don't remember ever seeing it before. I think it may have something to do with electronic transmissions. Looks like an antennae to me anyway.

Notice the difference in the color of the sky between the above photo and this one. Looking into the sun and away from the sun. Makes a big difference.

Of course, despite a former Mayor wanting to toss these ugly, rusting statues into the sea, thus creating a fake reef for marinelife, here they still stand. Rusting and becoming dangerous. Soon to be just fallen heaps of ugly, dangerous metal. Waiting to be blown at us during the next big hurricane. As a good friend of mine would say, they look nice from a far but are far from nice.
