When the hot lava reached the sea it cooled down forming a stunning rock composed of thin layers. with  a variety of red, orange, green, and glistening black volcanic formations. For a stunning view of two beautiful bays and great views of the various lava formations, we will need to climb up a wooden staircase to the summit.
