Nowadays it's a bit dangerous to get there, as the wall sands are falling apart, but it stills a beautiful place to take a closer look at this sand formations.

The place to view natures wind erosion sculpture close up.
The eroded sand provided the beach on the leeward side of the island over millions of years.

Spectacular cliff sculptures caused by wind erosion. Catch the bus to Camacha and walk from there about a mile or so then you can spend as much time as you like dont be rushed. can walk down to the beach with care.
