  • Parking access was quite difficult to find - well kept and clean. A lot of people trying to get pictures of the sea lions - the view is unbelievable.  more »
  • Even in winter, it is a beautiful place to go and visit. Hang out, take some walks, people watch, grab some food at nearby places - just enjoy the day! Will be back.  more »
