A TripAdvisor's review on the place reads, "We were there one week ago and there are absolutely no warning signs that every area beyond the immediate vicinity of the parking area is extremely dangerous. We were coming from Dream Beach walking along the cliffs towards Sandy Bay beach. Nowhere near the edges but a giant wave swept our children against the rocks requiring our [10-year-old] son to be taken to hospital with serious cuts requiring several stitches."
