There's a convenient set of stairs leading down to the sandy beach, where you can watch the impressive waves roll in. At the back of the beach there are tide pools where you can relax and cool off without worrying about waves.

It's hard to review Cocolishi as an independent attraction. It is one of the stops along the long route in the National Park so it's really part of another attraction - You definitely wouldn't make the 2 hour drive to see this spot if it weren't. It was worth stopping along the route to see, but nothing overly spectacular.

It's an impressive view. We spent there more than 1hour sunbathing and swimming in the shallow water and admiring the waves splashing into the rocks. It's a black sand little beach and it's fantastic!

This is a lovely little cove in Washington Park. It's on the long route in the park but well worth the drive. Bring snacks and water.
