You have to stop if you are around. Well maintained and beautiful. You can observe Domes Beach from this park.

Wonderful spot to view the ocean and walk in the gardens. Historic 1921 lighthouse to visit, and browse.

Maybe it was off season but this beautiful light house and park were boarded up and closed. The park grounds and walkways are lovely. From the park you can see surfers and look for whales. It is a bit difficult to find but still worth the trip.

Another great lighthouse to view the beaches, surfers, snorklers and beach fanatics. Also enjoy local vendors with their hand made wares, all at reasonable prices. Sea Glass is the favorite.

This place has been redone recently I think. The walkways were great and the vistas were stunning. The whole complex was clean and very nicely done. We were very impressed.

A beautiful view of the coast, don't missed! You can see the surfers at the Beach, most of the time there are some artesans at the Entrance, where you can have the opportunity to buy some souvenirs. An excellent view for photos for Weddings ...
