THE  BEST  STORM WATCHING DESTINATIONS

Storm watching is a popular pastime, and there are some important reminders to ensure your storm watching is a safe and enjoyable experience. Large rogue waves can happen at any time and easily catch you by surprise. So stay well back from the edge.

The sounds of nature are incredible, but it’s not just the howling wind that makes your heart beat faster. Picture this: you’re standing on a cliff watching as storm fronts come in and wave after wave crashes against each other before crashing into shore with an ominous boom.

The Ritz Carlton Hotel at Miramontes Point Road. This luxurious hotel is built very close to the cliff edge, and so you can watch the storm and crashing waves from the comfort of your room.

The storms that batter these small islands through the year have thousands of miles of open ocean to gain momentum before breaking along the coastline.
