So beautiful, but not a swim spot for beginners. Just sit back, catch up some rays, and relax. So nice.

Plenty of parking but it can be hard to find parking if you go prime time. I remember jumping off the rocks during summer here, but when I came in November, the waves were pretty big. It's a great beach with showers and restrooms. The...More

Love the farmers market on Thursdays. Nice little hike, the flowers weren't blooming quite as much in November but still lovely. The waterfall is beautiful.

This is a beautiful wide sandy white beach. There’s limited parking so u have to wait for someone to leave to get a spot. There’s bathrooms & outside showers. There were people rock jumping at the one end. I definitely recommend this to beach lovers.

I did not visit this beach regularly. But, it is about a 10 minute walk from Backpackers Hostel (Plantation Village). It is a great family friendly beach for surfing. But, careful of the waves that can get quite high and aggressive. It is very easy...More
