The short walk to the top gets you to a great spot from which to watch whales, although there are plenty of other nearby spots that are just as great for whale watching. We watched the most beautiful sunset sitting on the grass just up...More

Absolutely breathtaking and expansive panoramic views of the ocean! We saw pods and pods of dolphins and around 8-10 whales breaching and tail slapping (whale season is June to October). They come quite close to the shore so you end up having quite a close...More

A great place to relax in the evening, watch the surfers and enjoy the view. There are limited seats so a blanket is helpful if you plan on staying a while.
