This is truly heaven on earth. The most captivating and mesmerizing emotions brought out by the waves crashing on rocks, the smell of the ocean and just plain amazing beauty every direction you turn.

My family and I really enjoyed our drive. We stopped at most places for a photo stop and the views were amazing. A coffee stop at the golf course is to be recommended, we sat outside overlooking the course.

Lots of interesting and scenic spots, worth the entrance fee. You can stay as long as you like in any stop or come back if you want to.
