After a short hike down, we found the cove. It was nice but the graffiti below the bluff was sad. In front of our eyes were dancing ocean and the giant rock in the shape of a fin, but behind us was a wall of...More

Be prepared to do a bit of down and up hill climbing. Flip Flops just don't cut it. So worth the effort! Spectacular!
