Fodor's Review

From the top of Mt. Thompson, rising from the Three Sisters Beach, there is a pleasing view of the Three Sisters Rocks jutting above the water just offshore. Legend has it that the rocks were formed when three sisters, all unwittingly in love with the same English sailor, waded out into deep water upon his departure, drowned, and turned into stone. If you look carefully next to each "sister," you'll see smaller boulders—the children with which the fickle sailor left them. Mt. Thompson is about 12 mi north of George Town, past Moss Town.
