It's a beautiful peaceful place. I would recommend going during the day to see the beauty. Night would do it no justice.

We really appreciated that the others there didn't have music blaring. Everyone was speaking softly and watching. And it was glorious. After, we hiked the trail to the beaches. The hike wasn't a piece of cake but it was enjoyable. You definitely need water. And it's a long hike. Sunrise is worth it. The graffiti on the sundial was sad.
