This place was stunning. Lots to see when you walk around. Cliffs to climb and of course the beautiful ocean. Definitely a must see if you're in the area!

“Iconic Pacific View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Good luck parking, anytime of year, but once free of your car you can walk in both urban and seaside settings. I have loved swimming there in summer, no matter how crowded, because the Garibaldi and other fishes are there too. Sea lions are alarming, but exciting to see swimming by at a distance.

“amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

You can tell right away why the rich live here, just amazing beauty and the bonus of seals laying on the beach. Parking is a real challenge, but worth waiting for.

Such a beautiful place. We had a wonderful lunch at George's overlooking the ocean. So fun to see the sea lions and just stroll along the ocean front.
