  • Looking down at the series of pools in the gulch from the trail along the edge was interesting -- the green of the jungle foliage contrasting with the water.  more »
  • Super awesome view of the ocean and waves hitting the black rocks. Can only access some of the pools now though.
  • Amazing. TIP: Bring your reef shoes. Bring your lunch and plan a picnic. Leave early morning and make a day of it. Fill up with gas the night before — not a lot of options out that way. Oh — and bring cash for the fruit stands.
