Love the beach and the setting! The ocean views with beautiful homes and scenery. Awesome waves for boogie boarding. A little harsh for surfing! Cannot wait to go back! Pack light! The steps are not easy to navigate.

This is definitely a must do if you are in the area!! Not only are the steps a lot of fun, but the beach below is so beautiful. Well worth the energy to go up and down. Make sure you check the high tide times...More

Such a great quick hike with spectacular views. Little bit hidden away and the waves have been crazy both times we went so not sure it would be good for those with young kids or non swimmers. The Mexican place at the top to the...More

Went here with the fam after I read reviews. My wife and I are in our sixties but were able to make it back up the steps (although we stopped twice). It's actually only about 250-300 steps. Don't carry too much down the steps because...More
