The tiny sheltered cove of beach is stunning, and swimming in the water there a real experience. BUT - the drive down is T-E-R-R-I-F-Y-I-N-G, truly. And back up for that matter. The walk down from the car park is moderately treacherous, I would say the...More

Took our rental car down the scary, one lane road to the parking lot. As others have mentioned, you need hiking or gym shoes. Take the right side trail to reach the beach. In September, people started showing up around 11am but wasn't too crowded....More

We just drove here and I’d highly recommend going this time of year (October) because it’s still warm but way less busy. The beach itself is pretty small but the water is a great temperature and it’s a fun little hike down and back up....More
