This is walk behind the mansions next to the sea. (no charge) It is a gorgeous walk or stroll that is mostly paved. There are some portions that are strenuous and challenging (we turned around at that point). I would encourage those who are able...More

The Cliff Walk was the highlight of the trip. Part of the walk is on a paved surface, but this changes. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and take care as you walk several sections of the trail. Portable toilets are available early on in...More

Cliff walk is a great way to spend a morning. There is a paved path part way and some rocky parts for the more adventurous. There are great views of the harbor and mansions all along the way.

This was a great walk. We started near the end (by Bailey's Beach) and walked almost to the end. Be aware that it's not a sidewalk all the way; you'll have to walk across large rocks. Not too difficult but sandals aren't the best option....More

I have taken this walk several times. I never get tired of the view. In front of you is a great body of water and behind you the mansions.. Parking can be difficult. Limited space.
