If you have a car - must do this drive! A very scenic drive along the coast - many stops along the way to take pictures! An awesome spot to watch sunset as well!

We took this drive on our way to sea kayaking and it was beautiful! There are some pretty lookouts and just curving around the hills next to the ocean really is full of spectacular views.

We were so happy we were able to drive on this, especially since it had been closed for a week because of rains. The ocean and mountain views are just spectacular.

I would love to do the drive again on a clear sunny day! It was raining and we did not see much, but from what we did see, it was breathtaking!! The tar road is in very good condition! I would only advise driving slow...More
