Waking beaches is relaxing and a multi-sensory stress reliever. Fun to watch children play, fly kites and watch Fantastic sunsets.Less commercial businesses.

Easily accessible. Be ready for a $20+ entrance fee. Intresting hikes and views from the top of the cliffs.

We spent some time hiking up the trail. Then we went back down to the bottom of the hill and drove our car up to the top of the trail, where the museum is located. It was time well spent. The hike is fairly easy...More

I would ask the Uber to drop off nearby where you enter and pay to park. From there you can hike the trails or just go for a stroll on the beach
