This is a lovely park close to the city with accessible trails. At low tide you can walk to a small rock island. Bring a picnic to the beach and enjoy.

A lovely place to take short hikes and relax. Enjoy the views and be close to the water. Well worth the visit if you're by yourself or with a group. Pet friendly too!

We had an amazing time here and had to force our kids to leave. There's fantastic swimming, cliff jumping, rock climbing and general discovery for the whole family. Our 3 teenage boys had an absolute blast here.
