This amazing beach has the softest sand you've ever felt and amazing cliff faces towering over the ocean.

Follow the directions to the parking area and from the parking area you are free to roam. There are little paths everywhere down to the beach where you can walk down the shoreline into the different coves. Please be careful during high tide and make sure you are always in an area that is easy to get out of. You can also walk around the tops of the cliffs. 

There are picnic benches to eat lunch as well.
