If you can be patient and wait for a parking spot it's worth it! We rode a Harley so parking was no problem. Maybe going early in the day is a better suggestion. The view is beautiful whether or not the waves are crashing through the blowhole. Watched whales for several minutes then hiked below to the beach. I had motorcyle boots on so getting up and down was no problem. I definitely would not attempt in flip flops. While we were down there a young woman slit her foot wide open swimming too close to the rocks. I do not recommend taking young children down to the beach.
