A beautiful natural cove that is a great swimming spot. We stopped for an photo opportunity and did not see any public parking area. Since this is not the peak tourist season, the cove is not crowded. Definitely a great place for a dip if...More

We end up here, walking, just remember a pair of snickers and a pair of water shoes to get inside the water, rocks and stone underneath. It s a wander full place, from the bottom to the top

We discovered this spot and pulled over. The water views are amazing. You can walk down some steps and go swimming in this crystal clear water. There are some caves that you swim up to. So much fun.

We stopped here for a coffee on a cycle tour but we had not realised the wonderful scenery on offer. With stepps giving access to the water level on both sides of the ravine there are wonderful photo opportunities. There is also a cliff walk...More
