The Southeast Peninsula here is the extreme opposite of our lush rain forest. This is the area where you will see how plant life has adapted to the drought. There are several varieties of cacti and the Century plant that dies after producing a huge spike of yellow flowers; it is said that it blooms only once every hundred years. Aloe plants grow freely, but beware of the Manchineel with its poisonous apples and toxic sap. Another tree of interest is the Bursera, also called Gumbo Limbo, Naked Indian or Tourist Tree due to its peeling red bark. The biggest attractions to the peninsula, with the exception of its outstanding beaches, are the playful green velvet monkeys who inhabit the island and are especially prolific in this area. You can see them throughout the mountainside and along the roadways. This area also features Friars Bay, Banana Bay, Sand Bank Bay and Turtle Beach, which are among the most beautiful beaches on the island.
