From the cliffs, it looks like a very nice beach. But when you actually hike to the bottom you are surrounded by trash. Beer bottles, water bottles, red solo cups, plates and poop. I thought that it was dog poop, but then I saw the...More

There were only two people other than us so very relaxing morning stroll. Great views and photo opportunities but watch out for sudden waves. Got my shoes and socks wet, amateurishly. Watch out for the steep downhill walk too. Recommended stop on a roadtrip.

This is a spectacular view, and what I consider a must see while driving along highway 1. BUT, it was hard to find parking lot, and signs were confusing, which read No Parking (but if you read closely, it's only no parking at night)! The...More
