Beautiful coastal area to visit. Take hiking boots or shoes with a very sturdy sole or the volcanic rock will bruise your feet.

We have been here on several occasions but had never ventured down to the beach. We took the trail down to the cove and found this amazing beautiful beach. The whole are is great for walking and photography.

Gorgeous place to stop and see the beautiful look out inside. They can also help you plan a hiking trip. It was cold and rainy so we just looked around inside. Lots of informative info and local plants etc.

It's not a virgin old-growth forest, but it is still a gorgeous and accessible place to wander for a day, with paved and dirt trails to the crashing surf. Wildlife, too!
