  • Wow! This is certainly worth seeing and is quite magical. I was lucky with my binoculars to see a whale as it was moving up the coast. There is plenty of bird life and the formations of the rocks...

  • One of the most breathtaking views I've come across! There are 3 lookouts -- 2 close together on the left, the other a farther walk on the right side. No amenities. But lots of parking spots.
  • Nice easy walk to a couple of viewing platforms. Can get busy so better to get there early. Great for photography. Better in my opinion than the 12 Apostles. Do check out Boat Bay and Worm Bay too. Less crowded and different views.
