Nearby Attractions

Point Of Human Origins

Point of Human Origins is a cave home to those old burnt stones that were used to make fire. These stones are over a thousand years old and are quite an impressive watch. Take a guided tour for better insights to the history of the cave. 

St. Blaize Trail

The St. Blaize Trail is indeed long but worthwhile. The trail exhibits exquisite views of its surroundings including the lighthouse and cave and is rich with flora and fauna. As the trail is long, you could choose to cover it in parts. The trail starts at the cave and makes it path clinging to cliffs all the way up. There are benches on the way to rest for a while if the climb tires you.
