This is an amazing place for a beach wedding! We did ours with June at I Do Weddings and highly recommend them.

A great stop. Beautiful views of the coast. Can take a trail to see more views. Windy on the cliff. Can see the islands off the coast. Lots of parking. Bring your camera.

Very pretty look out. Close to a light house hike which is paved (read: stroller friendly). Parking available. Great view.
