“Nice place to wait for penguins”

Adults come ashore just after dark, returning to feed the kids hidden in burrows. You need a torch, please ask about appropriate rules for penguin watching. My photos taken with 50mm 1.4 lens near dark

Make sure you stop to see it when the tide is in because we were a bit late and it wasn't as big as we hoped for. But when larger waves rolled in we got to see how magnificent it could be!

The blow hole is quite small not quite as spectacular as others I've seen in the past but it's less than 3 mins drive from the Bichenon shops so it's quite easy to reach for a quick photo opportunity

Be sure to arrive 30 minutes before high tide to ensure thundery spouts of spray. Better when the sea is wavy.
