Beautiful view, worth the money. I would highly recommend seeing it at least once, especially if you're into history. I could sit there forever watching the boats.

Easy to get to and a short walk along the cliffs to see the rugged beauty. I was there twice during high tide and seen sea lions and surfers. The national $80 park pass is good here, otherwise it is $15 each time.
