Went out on overlook at high tide to see the rip currents and did a short trail around the top on a trail. The high tide view sitting on the rocks is incredible, a must for anyone who wants to see the spectacular tides.

there is currently a listing for the hotel portion of the property, however I'm not able to find a listing for the restaurant. I'd love to post a raving review! It was excellent! Also, there are a few tips worth sharing with future visitors.
