You have to go to the pier to take the ferry! Great photo ops.....and even more fun when the boats are cancelled, the wind is crazy and no one else is there!

A sunny day to get the ferry and walk around the area. Parking is difficult when busy. A beautiful place to chill. Camping site there as well.

Lovely pier for a stroll before or after dinner. Amazing rock pools for those interested! You might see a dolphin too.
