Wonderful walk next to the beach and the 'Devil's Washboard'. The shrine is beautiful and set on a little peninsula!

It was a cold but wonderfully sunny Christmas day when we visited which made it just perfect. We loved the ambience in the temple and really liked wandering across the fascinating rock formations. A highlight of our trip.

I've been before and I'll go again. Usually there are throngs of tourists, but I was passing through really early in the morning about 7am and we had the whole place to ourselves and got to explore a bit and take some great photos.

Located in front of ocean makes quite unique. The small ally with full of people's wish wood panel is also pretty. Nice to walk around
