Carefulness is called for, along this part of the walk.

The “Arch”
Part of the former route of the railway before erosion caused it to be relocated further inland.

"Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,
  when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,
 when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,
when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’?
Job chapter 38 verses 8 to 11

A major redevelopment work is being carried out in the Greystones harbour area. The end of the cliff walk ends in hoardings and redirections.
