An official RAMSAR site.
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.
