Amazing hike with even more of an amazing scene that awaits you at the bottom. Beautiful beach and fresh water holes to swim in. If you hike north along the coastline there is an even more amazing picturesque beach with blue coral. Make sure to find out about the water level at the bottom for drinking before making the trek in and leave early morning on the hike out for it can get brutally hot, especially with the incline. Well worth it!!
