This challenging climb leads down to a black-sand cove on the Atlantic (go at low tide for more beach). The sheer descent involves rope ladders, safety lines, and tree-root "steps." Cool off under the 150ft (46m) waterfall, then face the really hard part: getting back uphill! A local guide— who can advise on the best techniques— is a smart investment for this nail biting adventure.
