The lookout is pretty, but the view is much nicer if you walk down the path. It might be mildly tricky for novice hikers when the trail is wet, but otherwise it is not difficult. It is worth hiking all the way down to the beach, which has black sand and beautiful lava rocks of all colors. The surf is very strong here, so don't plan to swim here. Crashing waves on high rock walls makes for a gorgeous setting for a picnic lunch. There are also paths into the lush valley, and some people camp in the dunes just inland from the beach. It is a really beautiful setting.
