When I retired a previous pair of characters I took then there before logging out for the last time. I love that place and it used to be unusual to see anyone but the occasional RMT fishing bot or some THF/ killing the slimes for that cooking ingredient (forget what now). Sadly, that event that introduced tele-pornoisland items ruined it and made it too easy to get to. /cry
Still, watching the sun set from the western beach is one of the great moments in FFXI for me, probably only bettered by the visual awesomeness of the Empyreal Paradox.
