“Super Awesome Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Beautiful landscape and sweeping views. One of our windiest days - hang on tight, and stay away from the cliff edges!

“Fantastic views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Great place for photos and to watch birds. The road leading up to the promontory is breathtaking
as well. Geologists dream.

“Beautiful spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Although famed for sunsets, we arrived at a different time and still loved it. Beautiful rock formations and thousands of birds flying around and nesting in the rocks. Very serene...

“An awe inspiring spectacle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Hopefully you will have rented a 4x4?? The road leading up to this dramatic cliff top was no issue for our Land Cruiser, but I wouldn't have been so keen in a normal car. The howling wind, pounding surf and angry sky made for some fantastic photos. So glad we braved the track to get there.

“Very Beautiful. Very Dramatic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

There are large cliffs with enjoyable walks on top. Below, huge waves crash with a mighty force up the full height of the cliffs and through holes. It would be enough to simply sit here for a day watching mother nature's powers at play. Beyond that you can walk out across a beautiful beach and soak up the dramatic mountainscape beyond.
