Those sea eroded basaltic columns just south of road no. 1 are well worth a closer look. The name hints at the existence of mythological beings, that they are occupied by dwarfs, hence „The Dwarf Cliffs”. Basaltic columns are created when the lava is cooling off in standstill and the procedure is affected by water.
