with a rating of easy, I assumed it would be, well, easy. It isn't that it's treacherous but with the dirt it can be very slippery and dangerous. I saw many people turn around rather than risk it and I myself ended up sliding down in one spot. It was dry when we went and I would definitely NOT advise going when it's raining. Also, make sure to wear good footwear, flip flops could definitely be your downfall (literally) here. I would say this was a step up from easy as many people we passed wouldn't even attempt to go past the first stop.
it was a little tricky to get to but very private...it was like having your own little beach. the rocks break up the waves and turns to the pool into sort of a champaign pool. It was a great experience.
A little bit dangerous, but magic.
Go early and watch your footing!
This is a short and easy trail to a small beautiful red sand beach. The beach is the result of a landslide. If the beach is not crowded, which it often is because it's small, its very cool and unique. It looked like a beach in s volcano. We especially Liked the rock break which keeps waves out of the bay.
