A pleasant area of small inlets east of the sea walls of witches point. Sunny outlook and solid rock make this a must.

Approach by walking over witches head land (or if lucky with the tides across the beach) to the fisherman's ledges and scrambling down east before the neighbouring temple bay is reached. An abseil from the "wrasse" belay (above the right side of Witches Cave) can often save the walk over the headland on the way back.


Highly variable.

There is a cut off around the Second Inlet, so beware.

The Cave Area is useful as it permits climbing on the marginally tidal platforms for a good long spell (this is particularly easy if leaving a short length of abseil rope from the bolt anchors above).


Clearly visible from the Dunraven / Southerndown beach carpark. When tides permit walk/ scamper left across the beach. When tides do not permit it's possible to pass over the stile from the lower carpark and walk above the cliff tops to descend sketchily steep grass below Tufa Terrace. Not recommended if you are not familiar with the crag so best to wait until all you risk is wet feet from an ebbing tide.

To find your desired crag, type the name in to the Filter Markers box (top right corner of the map).
