This walk has great views of the ocean, I would think a camera a must on this walk, some of the steps are a little steep so not for everyone but if you talk your time well worth the walk.

Amazing walking trails, majestic views and miles of sandy beaches, headlands and ocean. Wildlife is seen and needs to be respected. A great way to spend some quiet time in the wild.
