We went early before leaving town and the beach was not busy at all. There is a paved parking area. It's a short 100 feet walk to the big boulders of the jetty. It has lovely grassy sand and is a beautiful place to watch to watch the action of the wave’s crash against the rocks.

Nice short walk from the parking area to the jetty. Large rocks require careful trekking to get out to the end. Slippery as well. Take care when the wind and waves are up! You do feel like you are at the end of the world.

We visited the jetty in mid-December when the winds from the south were a steady 35 knots with gusts over 50, and the waves were around 20 feet high. It was cold and wet, with waves crashing -- an awesome testament to the power of the sea.

We came here during a high tide and a storm on the suggestion of our server at Shilo Restaurant. WOW! The waves breaking over the jetty were beyond wow. Totally worth it.

We were there for a great storm. The waves were magnificent. It is a must see. Stay away from the rocks though, or risk getting drenched! recommend wearing hiking boots and wet weather gear.

It was a very stormy weekend and we went to the jetty to watch the waves. The waves were about 30 feet high and crashed over the rocks. Amazing sight to see, great place to storm watch.
