Another stop was made at the Canal Rocks

First picture is a panorama while standing on one side of the formation, the second picture is from the road a little bit further south.

The rock formation takes its name from the narrow channel between the rocks that has formed from the coastal waters eroding the granite-gneiss away over time.

Pounding waves off the Indian Ocean have sculptured a network of canals into this headland, forming a patchwork of rocky islands. The unusual pattern of coastal erosion is controlled by an intersecting system of joints, fractures and fault within the gneiss. It allows the water to deeply penetrate the rocks eroding it to form linear-shaped canals
