Worth coming for a look as part of your journey around the loop road. If you don't have a car or easy means of getting there, then perhaps not worth all of that trouble. Nice, though.

You can walk all the way from Sand Beach to here, or park across from Otter Cliffs, where there is a walk down onto the cliffs. The views out to see, and back toward Sand Beach are beautiful.

I know this is technically a part of the Ocean Trail, but it's a spot you must visit (even if you don't do the trail!) There's something magical about the steadfast boulders standing besides the crashing waves.

We thought we might see otters around here but not so. It was gorgeous coastline though with a roadside trail to enjoy.
