Really steep if you park where AllTrails leads you! Slippery gravel/sand, wish we had our poles. As others mentioned it’s a nude beach, so may not be great for kids. There were some men doing naked yoga!

Trailhead is not clearly marked but with the help of nav we found our way easily enough as there are multiple routes that will get you there. The cove itself is beautiful. Note that it is largely nude beach so snapping pics of this beautiful spot is a little awkward at times.

The most wonderful place! Like the reviews stated finding a place was a bit difficult with others there but found a nice little spot to settle in with my dog. Very clean. Yes, a lot of people were nude but it was absolutely wonderful and everyone was super cool. The hike down is super easy, up is a little tiring but not bad overall. If you park along the street where the directions take you it’s a lot closer than the parking lot. Swimming was great!

Park on the side of the road if parking lot is full (very small lot); from the road you need to get down the hill on a steep descent, then the trail is easy and flat for a few hundred feet. Have to descend to the water using steps. The sandy beach is relatively small, but there are plenty of boulders which can be used for sitting. The water in the cave is very clean and the view is breathtaking

This was an excellent morning trail. Started down about 11:30 am 7/1 and stayed at the beach for about an hour and headed back up and was at the car by 2:00 pm.
