The Giant's Causeway


The Giant's Causeway is an official Unesco World Heritage Site, also , is Northern Ireland's most famous landmark (known to the Irish as the 8th Wonder of the World). Formed by volcanic eruptions between 50 and 60 million years ago; as the lava cooled it formed these distinctive hexagonal shapes just as the bottom of a dried riverbed would crack into shapes.

This Ireland’s marvel takes its name from the legends of the giant Finn MacCool who was supposed to have built a causeway to cross the sea. This place is breathtaking because rarely nature produces such regular shapes.

You can spend hours photographing the basalt columns. A promontory of neatly packed columns of hexagonal basalt rocks, and it is best seen during high tide, fewer crouds and more column islets. The Giants Causeway is a must see!.
