Can be a difficult walk but worth the effort. The walk along the ocean has many sea turttles to watch and enjoy.

Muddy trail through a beautiful area. Go slow, but worth the view with many turtles. Heed all the warnings.

Wear shoes & clothes you don't mind getting muddy and make sure you have a sturdy walking stick. Worth the trek if you're in the mood for adventure!

It's a tough hike if it's wet after a rain. Definitely not for your mother in law. I personally would not take a 3 year old unless you are comfortable with holding onto them the whole way. There were many places where we... More
