I actually think this is a bit over-hyped. It is a lovely, clean, big beach, and the rock formations are interesting and covered with all sorts of marine life. Worth an hour's visit.

Dramatic rocks, most people walk along the sand and wade a little in the water; there is a very small area for swimming. In summer you need to get (free) tickets ahead of time. Go at low tide.
