Although you need a car to arrive (and walk a little bit more), it is a wonderful spot that worth the exercice. We were practically alone and the natural sound of waves going back into the ocean, while touching the stones beach... it resulted in a sound that I never heard in my life. Great for relaxing, meditating, enjoying...

The day we visited this beach a visitor was hit by a stone and had his hand ruined. So be careful when lying on the beach. When there are goats they can move the Stones making them come down.

And the beach to the left, accessible only at low tide, is even better than this beach of Silence. It has a small waterfall from a stream where the water jumps from three meters tall to the beach. Truly a paradise. Be careful as there is no rescue personnel and the slope from the shore to enter and exit the... More

In June, before the summer rush begins, this is one of the most poetic beaches I have seen. It's worth the detour.

We had been given a list of places to see in the day by our hotel, and this was one of them. The road down is steep and narrow, with very few places to park. The track is one way - which is not clear at the start, only when you try to go back you see the "no entry"... More

It is a bit of a drive to get there and a walk down to the beach but it is well worth it, with towering cliffs and a stoner isolated beach being your reward. There were people sun baking, but it is more of a place to explore, for the kids to throw stones into the surf and for others... More

Very picturesque view of the bay after the long windy road down but as the tide was in and only a few rocks were left above the shore line we did not stay . Would return another time as looked a lovely little bay.

quiet, great swimming and good hiking trails close by. Better with a car due to hazards on the road.

A very narrow side street in the tiny village became even more narrow with a build up of cars in the bushlands and cliffs over this beautiful drop into the sea. Good luck if you want to get down there! Stunning but impossible!
