Magnificent coast line... a great spot to be mesmerised by the ocean. A must to visit at sunset too and we timed it just right!! The obelisk itself is fenced off as the cliff edge is crumbling away!!

We walked the coastal path and enjoyed lovely views all the way. The walk gives you an opportunity to see interesting houses, some local history and very rugged coast line.
