  • Even on a bit of a drizzly day, the steps were amazing. The sea breeze and the sloshing water makes this a hidden gem. Take it easy on the steps as they have started to crack and crumble. If you feel adventurous there is a protruding rock you can step out onto to see the waterfall off the cliff side.
  • I'm seriously Impressed by the cafe. The food is good and they're very courteous
  • Fantastic food from all round the world. Karen has an amazing talent
  • I have been told that the reason for no direction signs is that putting up tourist signs means having to have insurance for any accident at the steps. The steps are so uneven that great care is needed, so no insurance, thus no signs. Word of mouth, and general directions works fine!
  • Stunning scenery. Fun walk down old, steep steps. Be careful, it's worth it.
