The rugged shoreline rises some 50 metres above the crashing waves,
exposing various gradations of the Silurian-age dolomite, roughly
400 to 425 million years old. Sea caves and other unusual rock formations
have been carved by ancient waters. Karrens, which are small furrows
in the limestone bedrock, demonstrate the erosive properties of
rainwater. Dry upland forests predominate.
