  • One of the most unique beaches in the world. Pebble beach, tide pools and incredible rock formations. Great for photographers and nature enthusiasts. Not the best for simply sunbathing.
  • Great place to visit. Anazing rock formations. Worth spending time take your kids too. The beach is full of large and small sized pebbles - very colorful. Though you are not supposed to pick them - lot of people collect them and make jewelry out of these. Walking on them is like a foot massage. Feels good. I would love to do it everyday if I get a chance.
