Beautiful rock formation - perfect subject for photography. The restaurant nearby had decent food. Wish we could have stayed longer, but when you're on a tour, time is so limited - so next time I'll definitely rent a car.

When someone says a black beach, it just like “oh it’s a black beach” and then you see it..it’s jet black with white foaming waves splashing over it, it’s surreal defiantly a must see...I even brought some of the black beach home (sorry not sorry)

Does exactly what it says on the tin, well worth detouring slightly to step foot on the black sands and see the sea stacks and basalt columns of the coastline.

Dramatic scenery in winter! Worth a stroll, just mind the wind and the sneaker waves. Definitely stop by!

I've been to many black sand beaches, including some in Hawaii, but this one is really unique and the beach is really vast. The two caves by the beach are also amazing beautiful. Overall, a great stop!
