I've never been anywhere like this before. It's a really spectacular location. We came here with our 3 teenaged children whilst on holiday. They aren't impressed by much but I think even they could see it was pretty amazing. My son particularly enjoyed climbing over...More

We were there in mid September. It was raining. It was overcast. We didn't care. There was something so magical, rugged, beautiful about this beach. The waves were crashing. The forest next to the beach was worn with weathered trees and large pieces of weathered...More

If you want a sandy swimming beach, this is not it. If you want an unusual stop, this may be perfect. Large rocky beach filled with large driftwood trees. A tree graveyard. It's really interesting to walk along the shore and see all the trees...More
