This park is a beautifully maintained treasure. Wonderful hiking trails, stupendous beaches, beautiful forests, and perfect picnic areas. A natural wonder, not to be missed.

Some of the most beautiful coastline you will ever visit. When you come bring you're camera as you will be taking lots of pictures and will want to share those with your friends and family.
