We saw this view in the middle of a thick mist cover. However, we were able to see the view for around 4-5 mins. Beautiful view but badly congested. Can visit this once.

Awesome view of nature made rocks. Good to see the force of wind on natural rocks and how it can shape the terrain

Too crowded. But the drive to Pillar Rocks is good. You pass through the Golf Course, The Golf Club and some schools on the way. You have to be lucky to see the Pillar Rocks since mostly it is misty and you don't get to see the rocks !

Visited the place on the second day of our trip and liked the view. It was raining and misty. The rocks were clearly visible though.
