The Grottoes

The grottoes are the resulted of an ongoing geological process over thousands of years.  It began with a series of underground shocks that ripped gapes into the bedrock. Rainwater penetrated the gaping rifts, dissolving them and forming within tunnels and caves that relentlessly proceeded to expand because of the intensity of the waves slamming the rock during a storm.  During strong storms in winter, when the wind speed is intense, the waves' spray rises to a height of 35 meters or more and ascends even above the edge of the cliff.
