The garden alone is worth the visit - so much color! And now the holiday lights are ON! We missed them by a few days. Still a beautiful garden and the trail around the cliff and down to the beach is fantastic. An incredible hike.

We were just there! During the Holiday lights it is $5 cash unless you are staying in a State Park or have an annual park pass then it is free. Just show your paperwork or pass at the entrance.
