Nice spot to take pictures. You can stop along the road and go to film the water explosion. Just stop 15 or 20 minutes.

Very impressive when the tide is right. We visited at low tide to start with - a bit of a damp squib. However, our timing was better the following day and we were blessed with a fine display.
