  • This is a sacred place. It seems untouched by time. The rocks have been shaped by eons of wind, rain and sunlight. I just felt so peaceful, even though I was sinking up tk my ankles in some of the sandy spots! I recommend that any traveller needs to put this on their bucket list. It is a truly unforgettable place.
