An old bathhouse right up against the breaking waves. So many cool pictures and the view at sunset is fantastic. I had a great time sitting on the old walls just taking in the scenery.

As a history geek, I love places like this. It is a wonderful reminder of days gone by and what once was. There obviously isn't much left of the old baths, and it was difficult to get pictures without other people in the shots, but...More
