Breathtaking Views of a rugged terrain. Gets very windy when the weather is rough. I could sit there all day and listen to the waves crashing against the rocks.

We went here at sunset and took in the view. It can be cool so take a jacket. This place has a lookout on the beach with information about the uniqueness of the location. Well worth the visit.

An easy walk from the car park gets you to the "edge of the world". It is wild and wonderful with the large tree trunks washed up on the shore. If you time it right, there are opportunities for some great sunset photos. Worth the...More
