  • Nice visitor center with info about the history of the region. We took the walk down to the tidal pools and they were amazing! Seen a lot of crabs, fish, anemones, it was like an aquarium. The walk over the rocks to reach the pools is not easy, so not for all. Parking requires a parks pass.you can buy one in the visitor center or via the self serve envelopes.
