Driving along Ocean Ave this is a must see when the tide is coming in. Great photographic shots of the surf pounding into the rock formation and splashing out with a great froth!

Beautiful place to stop and take some pictures and reflect on what God has created! We rode our bikes by here several times. Super mansions!

This is really just a little pull-out place along the road where you can sit on a bench and look at the ocean. I didn't think it was all that spectacular. I mean, it's fine and all. But it's just rocks and waves. Pretty much...More

You can park and enjoy this wonderful place, 15 minute parking. Enjoy every minute, then let another person enjoy it too. Look closely at the vegetation, there are small birds and other animals moving about. So enjoyable and relaxing. Jim & Cheryl
