Get that 4X4 folks for this journey. Very rough but oh so rewarding once you make it here. When we went the winds was very strong so be careful when approaching the edge. Keep driving after this and you'll enjoy the next stop

We visited while mountain-biking down to Hulopoe beach. Amazing views from here and quite a spectacular place.
