The sea caves invite you to explore and the "waterfall" is just off to the right after you descend the beach access path. The attractiveness must depend on the amount of flowing water; when we saw it in October, there was barely more than a...More

Be sure to get a tide table and go to Hug Point at low tide. This is the only time you can view the Sea Caves and waterfalls on the beach. Very cool....and romantic.
