Although I had read the reviews, I still wanted this adventure. What a beautiful site once you come to the clearing. The trail is used frequently and manageable. It could be slick after a recent shower. The best part is jumping off the cliff and...More

You cannot get parking here unless you come extremely early. There are only about 15 spots in a private neighborhood next to a golf course/resort. We drove around for an hour looking for somewhere to stop and ended up leaving. We were talking to some...More

Pure Joy! Short hike down to the Bath. No parking really on busy days, maybe fits 10 cars and gets packed quickly. If you park illegally you will get a ticket as we witnessed neighbors grow irritable of the attraction in their backyard. Recommend parking...More

Beautiful but so muddy. We are big hikers but slipping on days that it has rained at all is unavoidable. It's a steep hike but the view is all so incredible. Wear clothes you don't mind to get dirty!!

There are only about 10 parking spots and they fill up fast. We drove there in the afternoon and had to return the next morning. The area is patrolled and is located in a wealthy neighborhood. Its a short hike and is worth it. We...More

At high tide, this really looks like many other cliff views of the island and it was very slippery and dangerous going down. If you go at low tide, you can actually get a view of the 'bath.' I wouldn't swim here and would never...More

It's a challenging short hike down to the cliffs and not recommended for littles. Cliff jumping for strong swimmers and adventure inclined. Great views! And the occasional turtle sighting.

This sunrise stop is not to be missed. We walked down the semi-steep trail (be warned it was muddy the day we went and took a little longer.) in flip flops. It was tougher than I expected but we saw a two year old and...More

It's only maybe 10 to 15 minutes but it is steepossible and can be muddy. If you are not an avid hiker count on about 20 so you can take your time and be careful :)

My husband jumped in, he was fine but I was nervous because the waves can be unexpectedly big. Yes, people have died sadly. If you aren't sure don't get in.
