Get ready for a walk. We started 4:30pm on the beach, walked a good distance, took lots of pictures, then went up to the hiking part, and got back to the parking lot at 7. Parking is $15. There are some free spots overlooking the water right on the highway, but those are hard to get. It was very misty for most of the time we were there, but the sun shone through later. It was weird how chilly misty it was at the beach, but not so in neighboring areas. The water is chilly. Good for walking in, but might be too cold to swim in. Bring sneakers and a bathing suit.
