Very nice short walk, with great view as a payoff. Definitely take some time to enjoy this gorgeous coast.

Reef Sanctuary on the west side of the island, where a short 10-minute walk through a forest will lead to a rocky shoreline where you’ll get views over the water and I saw a seal (and perhaps sea lion or otter), just be sure to follow the path around to the left.
