Not the easiest to access and helps to have 4WD but worth it. Amazing beach and rock formations. Didn't chance a swim because of the undertow warnings but the water is tempting and crystal clear!

From walking down the rustic trails to strolling along the rock beach you will not be disappointed. Beautiful views surround you. Take a dip in the blue clean water. Take your friends or family. You will love it here and enjoy the peacefulness

Excellent place to watch a sunset! You have to walk from the road to the shoreline but it's worth it. If you have an all terrain vehicle, you can take it closer to the water, otherwise I'd recommend leaving your vehicle at the road area...More
