Good Stuff
As the name suggests, the trail runs along the coastline. The view is absolutely incredible. I’d recommend this trail for that alone! If you’re looking for photo opportunities, there are plenty on this trail. It’s pretty well kept. Parts of the trail are paved and other areas are dirt. This is a a fairly challenging trail because of the hills. If you want to make your trip less challenging, you can do so by avoiding the downhill areas that lead to the beach.

Bad Stuff
There are a few very steep parts of the trail going downhill, depending on which direction you decide to go. Most of the trail is pretty narrow, and unfortunately, extremely busy. Also, there is not a ton of shade. Sadly, dogs are not allowed on the beach.

Waves are scary!

In conclusion, would we go again?
Definitely yes!
