Things to do in Whisky Point
Whisky Point is a great place to surf but not a very friendly place to swim. The reason is the waves here are very powerful so you could be thrown here and there if you enjoy it-you may proceed but this could be very tiring. You have to keep in mind that this place is not somewhere for a casual dip so be careful.
