The Whale’s Tail is a larger than life rock formation on the coastline which takes the form of, you guessed it… a whale’s tail! This particular location is also where hundreds of humpback whales gather each year for mating. How was this mystery of nature created? Currents which deposit sand on top of the rock here have made a unique tail-shape. This is quite the natural oddity that has newcomers and repeat visitors arrive each year to see it for themselves.
What are the best ways to view this natural beauty?
