I've come here several times on family vacations in the past and absolutely LOVE it here. Bouldering, kayaking, swimming, hiking, and just general exploring are merely a few activities that occupied me for hours here. (not to mention basking in the sun, reading, and taking naps on a towel) The views are absolutely stunning and while the water is a little on the chilly side, it doesn't stop most people from splashing around (especially me, being that I'm from AK) If I could pick 1 place to retire in 40 years, this would be it. Heaven on earth? I think this is as close as one could get.
