It is huge and irregularly shaped rock stacks made up by the Atlantic. It is the most magnificent sight that is surrounded by vast stretches of sand in summer and pounded by cold waves in winter.

One of the rock tacks is called as the Queen Bess Rock Because of its resemblance with Elizabeth I. The other one is called The Samaritan Rock, a name that was given after the wreck of Good Samaritan who was an East Indiaman from Liverpool and smashed to the shore by savage.
