“nice hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Trail near the Grand Hyatt that goes around the edge of a cliff. Great for picture taking, saw a sea turtle swimming out in the ocean.

“An Amazing spot to get married”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

When we went my wifes cousin got married on this beach at sunset. There are a couple of cool caves on the edge of the beach. It is backed by some cool trees. The waves are not too big to swim or snorkel here. Good sun but not a good view of the setting sun.

“Beautiful walk - not hard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Easy for all ages. If want to challenge yourself just walking further and further. Spectacular cliffs and friendly Americans happily chat to you as you pass them. This. Is the privileged life of the grand Hyatt guests.

“Great Place to Find Monk Seal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Great walk on the beach. We didn't swim here but we took pictures and just searched for ocean life and the whales were out front so we sat and watched them breaching and rolling off shore.

Take a walk up onto the cliffs and see a beautiful sunrise. There is a trail all the way to the golf course.
