This stretch of coastline has seen over 250 vessels loose their way and being wrecked on the jagged rocks. A strange magnetic anomaly occurs here where compasses point true North rather than magnetic North. This leads to confusion and very real danger for ships when the visibility is poor. There are only 2 other places on earth where this phenomenon happens – The Bermuda Triangle and The Devil’s Sea off the coast of Japan.
