Lover's Leap

Lovers Leap is named after an incident to have taken place in the 18 century.  The legend is two slave lovers usually meet secretly, however the slave owner wanted the female slave for himself so he arranged to have her lover sold, the thought of them to be separated was too much for them to live with,  so they decided to jump over the 1700-foot (518 meter) cliff overhanging the sea hand in hand  to their death.  That is indeed a sad story, but you won't be sad visiting Lovers Leap, it is absolutely beautiful. No photo can can do just to the beauty of this place.
