It is a tranquil almost unspoilt place with amazing seascapes. You need to be self sufficient with supplies. Don’t miss it. more »
Beautiful place. The orange stone is perfect for pictures and video. Try going in the late afternoon to get both sunny shot and sunset shot.
Hands down the most beautiful place I have ever visited. Not to give too much away, but walk left and you will not be disappointed.
