We enjoyed the hike and listening to the ocean waves. It is a great place to take photos, the day we were there the whales were in which was more interesting.

If you want a nice hike then this is a moderate hike that takes you along the ocean, in the forest and you end up at King's Cover lighthouse with amazing views of the rugged shores of Boavista Bay.
