The shortest and most popular sight-seeing tour from Steamer Point is to Crater, the original commercial area and a town built in the hollow of an extinct volcano crater,
on the opposite side of the peninsula. From Prince of Wales Pier the road leads past the Crescent and its shops and gardens along the front and through the Maala Straight,
a new road on reclaimed land and rapidly being lined with new blocks of shops and flats, many of them service hirings.
At the end of the straight, turning right at a roundabout,
the road climbs past cemeteries, legend says Cain is buried here, to the Main Pass, cut through the central rocky ridge.
Just before driving through this, a pause on the car park
beside the traffic office at its entrance gives a wonderful view back over Maala to the dhow harbour and Slave Island, where the ancient craft of dhow-building is still carried on.
