Information

What these cliffs lack in height they more than make up for with their amazing colours and swirling patterns. The patterns are caused by ground water percolating down through the sandstone and staining the rock. Wave action and sea spray have continued the erosion, resulting in magical honeycomb patterns, potholes and notches. Best seen from water for full effect.
