About the listing
Many a visitor holds a special memory of their visit to the Grotto. Spray from waves can cast a fine mist over the low viewing area; sunshine does the rest filling the air with rainbow delights.
The still clear water in the open cave casts reflections in contrast to the dynamic moving water of the ocean directly behind it.
The viewing wall is there for visitor protection as the low shelf that feeds the rock pool is regularly crested by waves approaching undetected out of deep water.
