We took this drive on our way to sea kayaking and it was beautiful! There are some pretty lookouts and just curving around the hills next to the ocean really is full of spectacular views.

Absolutely gorgeous. The views are amazing, convenient points for you to stop to take photos. Don't forget about the toll gates - they take cash and card if i remember correctly.
