HikingGreat!No shade

Wonderful views along the coast, but a majority of the trail is on dirt roads with traffic, which is a pity. Be cautious when following the yellow-red trail markers, especially when doing the hike counter-clockwise – after Amado it's easy to end on a different trail that takes you much further South.

Belles vues, sentier facile d accès. Partie côtière un peu longue car elle emprunte un large chemin partagé avec les voitures, offrant une belle vue mais assez similaire sur plusieurs km. À faire tout de même !

Great wee walk, not hard at all. The last bit of the trail is sandy, so I’d pack flip flops.

De magnifiques points de vue mais la majeure partie de la randonnée (le long des falaises) s effectue sur une piste carrossable avec de la circulation, même hors saison touristique... c'est dommage!!

The beaches are incredibly beautiful and clean. The circuit was at least 2K longer as we went out on every board walk and lookout. Following a Road most of the time and the section south of Amado Beach can be missed.

Beautiful route and you can shorten if need be. You can drive most of those to cater to your needs. Will point out the first bit is in deep sand so be prepared. Gorgeous views. Could spend the entire day doing this walk stopping at all the different vistas. Definitely recommend!

The walk along the coast is splendid. Crazy, crashing waves and scary, jagged cliffs. Can be heavy going on the deep sand paths.
