While reaching Columbo you can park on the headland in two different positions and make your way down through a narrow path. The impressive yet dramatic landscape will amaze you. Surrounded by a wild landscape, Cape Columbo often gets windy. In fact, it is the wind and the waves that have formated the wild rocks of Columbo.
