We only took the boardwalk hike, which on our day was extremely windy. But the views were beautiful! There are many more paths available to take, both right off the main boardwalk trail and on the...

Great area for looking at tide pools, there are a ton of little crabs and sea anemone. Seals can be seen here at times too. Nice place to take a walk.

Great place to visit, definitely my calm place. Parts of the beach isn't too over crowded with people so it's perfect to wine down and watch the waves. Also, the tide pool is amazing! Got to save a starfish without touching it ofcourse! It was stranded on a rock in the hot sun but was able to move the rock it was on and placed it in a shady spot in the water! I recommend to anyone that visits, also make sure to visit the visitors center. They got some interesting things, you will not be disappointed!
Beautiful grounds, a well paved path. Great for tide pool viewing, or walk along the beach that seems to go on forever north. Bathrooms are available at the visitor center and a few at the campgrounds. Campgrounds are nice and inexpensive. I took my family of 6 there manys times, my kids love it there.
