  1. Very high winds out there. So sad about this. Tough way for this family to end their vacation.
    Deepest condolences.

  2. A very dangerous area that needs a perimeter barrier set up….visitors would have a tendency to get carried away by the beauty literally by the strong winds.

  3. Condolences to the family ..

    A post on Instagram on the page of lady koture boutique was brought to my attention. This was posted just 3 days ago. This woman was walking across devils bridge in high heels and posing for the camera .. a few people commented on the post how dangerous it was and she responded by saying she does it all the time.

    This behavior for a grown woman is disrespectful and reckless and honestly I believe that someone should look into the matter.

    These places are very dangerous and people putting themselves in danger seem very irresponsible, especially for an adult.
    This could only lead to other people being copy cats.

    I could not believe seeing this woman walk the rugged rocks of devils bridge in high heels with the rough seas splashing only for an instagram post.

    Our beautiful island has many sites but people need to be responsible.
