HikingGreat!Rocky

Tough short trail has you making your own way over rugged rocks and up steep climbs. Was great fun with some incredible views. Added bonus of seeing some seals playing in the water below! Would thoroughly recommend.

We had a fab walk here yesterday, beating the rain by a few minutes certainly helped.

Small, cozy beach town with a gorgeous trail along the crags. You can't beat it.
