Sandambeki Rock Cliff, Shirahama-cho

3.3
#5 of 9 in Parks in Shirahama-cho
See the handiwork of the Pacific Ocean during an exploration of Sandambeki Rock Cliff, a coastal stretch featuring attractive and impressive rock formations. Take in the sight of the ocean battering the 50 m (164 ft) tall cliff, eroded into tiers that appear both rugged and ordered. Head down the elevator to explore a cave said to have been a secret hiding place for the Kumano-suigun navy during the late Heian period (794-1185 CE), and take the time to scrabble around on the rocks to the north of the cliff, snapping photos of the interesting formations.

    Cape rock cliffs! Iwashima giant in front of me! You can go down there, in the elevator, the three walls and caves. Paid, but the bad is not.

    Friends were invited. Entered the three-wall cave, picture taken with the powerful sky. Cool in the summer when it's hot, feel the greatness of nature.

    Last few times I visited, but gentle waves in a cave this time in, there was no thrill. I think it go at high tide (full time) to figure out in advance can enjoy the thrill. Trying to clean, but we could see the Pacific Ocean.
