Devil's Bridge


Just before reaching Long Bay, a rough 1-mile dirt road veers off the main highway toward this windswept bluff ringed by rugged cliffs shaped by the relentless crashing of powerful waves. Views are fabulous and especially rewarding at sunset. If the tide is right, you can see the powerful blowhole at the far end in action. A new adults-only resort being built here does seem set to rather change the overall atmosphere, however.
