Good track leading down to the beach with views of the rock and access to caves. Carpark was however quite overcrowded.

Last saw the rock 60 years ago when the only way was by boat. Great walking track even for geriatrics like my self.

Pretty little beach with black and golden sand, we were lucky to enjoy a day with 27 degrees - it was so perfect.

Beautiful! Had to park at the top of the hill with the motorhome and walk down. Not too bad at all - had baby in backpack and five year old walked. Walking track is well maintained.

Beautiful bay with stunning rock formations. Motorhomes need to park on the road above the carpark, but it is only 100m away from the track entry.

Beautiful little bay worth every turn of the windy road. Works also at low tide, when all the other bays are sucked empty.

More or less famous rock which is split right in the middle, nice little beach and possible penguins, but have not seen them.

Both really wonderful beaches, crystal clear water, golden, sandy beach. We enjoyed spending a nice Sunday there, swimming and laying in the sun.
