10min stop. Easy access from the highway. Great stop to break up the long coastal drive. You could do it in
Great place to stop and break up the drive, easily accessed from the highway. It has some beautiful rock formations and interesting place to climb around. For an amazing view stop in the middle of winter, the way the ice can build up is amazing.
If you like geology or just like cool looking rocks, this quick stop is a must. 1 minute off the Trans Canada Highway, the limestone formations are really neat. Adventurers could climb on top if you have some good footwear and adrenaline. If you prefer to stay grounded the pebbles on the shore under the arches are incredibly beautiful. I could have beach combed all day there. Didn't get 5 stars because although it is free to go in, the washrooms are just drop toilet style outhouses that were in desperate need of attention.
Really gorgeous views. The arches weren't quite what I was expecting but I still had a great time. If it hadn't been so insanely windy I would have enjoyed having a nice picnic there. We did go back for sunset which was spectacular - sunset right through the arches. I highly recommend this for anyone in the area. THe only downside is that there's no camping allowed there, which is sort of understandable since it's a pretty small space that would probably be overrun by campers.
Awesome and well worth a trip. Great view from the top.
