The Breakwater, Granite Island
On my recent visit to Victor Harbor south of Adelaide I went for a walk out to Granite Island. The island is linked to the mainland via an old, historic wooden causeway. This walk is a very popular walking route for visitors to the town. You can also take the horse drawn tram to or from the island.
One of the features of the island is the breakwater section on the eastern end of the island. These rocks were placed there to give some protection to boats moored in the bay as well as those that use the nearby jetty. The rocks are always a good place to watch the waves crashing as the swells come in from the Southern Ocean.
Near the breakwater is a restaurant. Next to the restaurant there are wooden steps leading one to a higher part of the island. Along this series of steps is a small lookout platform. This is an excellent place to see the waves pounding on to the rocks. It would have to be one of my favourite spots in a totally beautiful location.
