Actually the hiking trail off the beach was great. It following the shore line and gave great views of the ocean from cliff lookouts. Met a guy selling coconuts and offering them for free if you had no money. Added to the charm.

Very secluded despite being next to the Hyatt - nice clean and quiet beach...hope it doesn't get too crowded!

Beautiful beach next to the Hyatt. Pounding surf, but fun to watch the experienced surfers out there! Loved the little walk up the bluff next to it, a perfect vantage point from which to spot some whales. Definite quality time.

If you are looking for a quiet beach to sunbathe, this is it! Quiet, out of the way and rarely crowded.

I come here at least once a week.

I don't recommend swimming unless you are familiar with the currents and water conditions...though it is fun to watch the surfers and boogie boarders...there is also a nice hike leaving from this beach...you can go a short distance or a good hike along the ocean.

You might even catch some 'jumpers'...diving off of the cliff just to the left of Shipwreck's Beach.
