What a great place to take a walk and see nature in her rawest form. The waves crashing against one side of the jetty and the calmness on the other side. Great picture spot.

Truly a great place to see a lot of lush vegetation and beautiful views to photograph. There are homes/cabins available to rent and the hike to the lighthouse is well worth it!
