Visited about a month ago at sunset and place did not disappoint. Impressive beach and fantastic landscape from the rocks. I think this is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. It is important to know, only 5,000 people are allowed to visit...More

Pretty impressive to see what mother nature is capable of. Massive rock formations formed by years of the oceans rathe. A must see!
