It's a fairly easy walk here from the Town, only a little steep in places. Wonderful views from the cliff tops. Saw some dolphins. Nice cafe when you reach the main part of the area.

Hi. Yes, the site is accessible in a powered wheelchair. Please be aware that some of the paths on and around the head are uneven gravel, but you shouldn't have a problem. We hope you enjoy your visit! Laura
