Gouliot Headland

An official RAMSAR site.

Gouliot Headland

The Headland gained it's RAMSAR status in 2007 and is recognised worldwide for its unique animal and plant life, particularly in the Gouliot Caves, which boast a colourful patchwork of marine life including sponges, anemones and corals.

The headland above the caves is a blanket of bluebells and primroses in Spring and lush green ferns in Summer. Botanists may also spot white bluebells and the rare sand crocus.

Walking on the headland is a delight. Whether its picnicking on a bench, watching the sunset over the panoramic sea view or saying hello to the resident sheep and goats that graze the area.
