Beautiful views looking out over the ocean. Follow the boardwalk down to the monument. You can then continue on past the monument to the look out.

A great place for a BBQ. At the far northern part of the island, nice toilets, great view over the ocean and a long way down to the water. The start of a 1.7 km walk to the top of the island.
