The place offers beautiful view of the city. One can also enjoy the endless ocean, with the sound of waves splashing the cliffs. Not very crowded on weekdays, this is a good place to walk by and enjoy the views.

Most people come for Doyle's, but there is more. Pretty. Great views of the Harbour and City. Not overrun with tourists. Some quaint original houses. Friendly people.
