While the water is frigidly cold (48 degrees the June day we were there), it's a terrific place to lounge on the beach, have a picnic and just soak up the beautiful coastal sights.
It has a nice beach with the beautiful rock formations at the ends of the beach.

Designed with the natural contours of the land to minimize impact and to maximize views it's the perfect place to hike or bike ride and really enjoy the solitude of nature.
