Make sure you wear GOOD shoes. Also we made the long hike there and the cave was locked. Such a disappointment

Beautiful photos as sunset. Jump is frightening & not recommended as it's very difficult to swim in.

Fun hike with beautiful view of some pretty varied terrain. Starts in a beach. Go up cliff top for spectacular sunrise views. Nice golf course view for a bit before heading over to the cave. Made it to the cave but cave is locked up mon/tues.
