Cliff Landslides

The new warning signs

There have been a number of cliff landslides over the years between southern end of Piedra Playa (Surfers’ Beach) and the next beach, which is really only accessible at low tide. This means walking under the cliffs to get there.

I took the photo below in October 2012 after some heavy rain. This obviously destablised the cliffs causing the cliff to breakaway. Eventually this lead to a cliff landslide.

I took this on 29th October 2012 at the very spot
