You just 'have' to stick your arm through the hole, or pull a funny face through it whilst having a photo taken. A harmless, free, few moments of fun, if your passing by, but not really worth a hike to.

Although an interesting quirky sculpture with a great view of the beach, it isn't very exciting and time could be better spent at the nearby shops or restaurants. For anyone that happens to be passing by, I recommend walking up the the sculpture to have a look out to sea, on a sunny day, but wouldn't make a special trip... More

The Doughnut is a lovely little sculpture that both locals and visitors love to have a look at. It has a great central location right by the pier.
