The skillion is an ideal spot for whale watching. There are stairs all the way to the to. No need to walk on the grass.

This lookout has a wonderful view over the ocean and it is a great location to watch the whales pass when they are travelling either north or south.

The walk up to the lookout is steep, but well worth the effort. The view up and down the coast and back over the town are beautiful.
