pair of jewel-like coves.
The coves lie on either side of the eroded
remains of a volcanic ash cone, which make up the point. The
sheltered bay is a popular anchorage for boats and visitors may have
a look around in dinghies.
The surrounding cliffs are actually the interior
walls of a fallen volcano and there is a partly flooded cave.
