Reminds me of an upscale Santa Monica, with the beach down below and the biking/walking trail above. Beautiful, can't say enough about how peaceful it was.

Great drive to take as well as a walk. If you have the time and stamina, it is a good work out from the Boardwalk area to the Natural Bridges state park. Stop off at the little lighthouse for some surfing history

It is a great walk along the waters edge. You have many picturesque views and some nice ocean front homes to look at. A wonderful way to clear your head, or walk with that special someone. I bring all my friends and visiting family here. A wonderful 5 mile round trip walk.

We rented a house right on West Cliff Drive, the sunrises were awesome. Lots of surfers and my husband and sons went fishing each morning just across the street. Very nice neighborhood, the houses are lovely.

We loved driving and walking along West Cliff Drive. You can visit the Surfers museum, watch surfers in action, admire the sheer cliffs and breathe in the ocean air. Wonderful place to just get outdoors and relax.

I was unable to walk when we went on this vacation. We did the drive down the west coast to the natural arches and stopped in the free parking for look.
