Wonderful walk on a sidewalk along the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Public restrooms are available along with grassy fields and a playground. You can keep heading east along the sidewalk to head down to Leadbetter Beach and the harbor. A must visit!

We drove by after lunch and it appears to be a beautiful place to simply sit and watch the ocean and the people walking by. Look the other way and you can see the mountains.
