We needed a break and stopped, expecting to continue on down the coast for another couple of hours...until we took in the view and googled the history of "The Rock". Fascinating. We ended up not only spending the night but staying on several days to...More

Rocks, breaking waves and right off the highway....what a combo. Even enjoyable when it's foggy and rainy, but a person needs to be aware of the tide schedule for the day.

Beautiful views from the the top of the park or a nice uncrowded beach down below. Either one is relaxing and scenic. One thing, though, is that it can be quite windy there. I was talking to a guy flying a kite and he said...More

A little hike down a steep cliff but well worth the walk..The beach is uncluttered and easy to walk on once you get down to it..Scattered along the way is picnic benches..There is a bathroom at top..and plenty of parking.

Stroll the beach, climb the rock where the battle took place, or sit on a bench and relax. Possible to see a whale, seals or collect agates, whatever the ocean has to offer that day. The wind does blow...take a kite!

Stopped here for lunch. After sitting on a deck overlooking the crashing waves we went for a hike. Great place to stop a there is tonnes of parking and the ocean is just a stones throw away.

Easy access beach with lots to see. At low tide you can walk through a "cave" in the rock. A short stroll down the beach to see tide pools. Great place to spot whales during their migration.
