Approach

Continue along the worn path past the toilet past the "No Vehicles past this point" sign. Break off left towards the sea after passing between a few rock 'guidelines'. Descend the rock stairway to reach the top of the cliff.

'Access' to the base of the cliff is easy after walking to the end of the ramp that runs into the sea.
