Access to the car park on the eastern side is provided by Harbour Road which is PLEASE NOTE in NEED OF REPAIR. Please understand that this road (observed August 2009) has many pot holes and is VERY uneven. Having said all that, when you get to car park you will find a place of peace and quiet where you can take in the natural surroundings of this unique area.
