  • Lovely stop on a beautiful drive. Smaller stop but round about parking. Great views all around from the open ocean to beaches where sea turtles nest. Best stop seems to be around sunset!

  • Beautiful Drive. Just took the drive and saw the view. Didn’t do the hike down to Isaac beach. So for the view, it was a fun short excursion from where we were staying.

  • It's a beautiful peaceful place. I would recommend going during the day to see the beauty. Night would do it no justice. You get to work your way up the mountain and every turn every bend holds an even more breath taking view. I had the pleasure of going while flowers were still in bloom and there was a cool breeze and I loved the sweet salty flavor if the air and smells of beauty. I would go again.
  • We went to see the sunrise and it was awe inspiring. It reminded us of seeing the Russian River spill into the Atlantic around sunset. 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.
