be careful which trail you take, don't do the one on the cinder cones exactly (very loose lava rocks that fall on to the beach and overgrown signs warning you). mostly uncovered so be prepared, beautiful views and combo hike/beach area. part of hike is along little beach, be sure to Google that part

Wear sturdy shoes, this is not a flip flop hike. Bring more water than you think you will need, it is hot. But the views are nice and the knowledge that you are walking in the steps of history is worth it.

We had a perfect day for this hike, overcast with a light breeze. The trail was great, interesting sights from the otherworldly landscape to the goats roaming around the wooded areas and further up the volcanic rocks. What was not so great was when three guys in a Toyota 4Runner came off-roading up behind us. When they parked about an 1/8 of a mile ahead of us, we decided to end our trek to the lighthouse and turned back to the parking lot. Since these guys had no qualms about ignoring the “no motorized vehicles allowed” sign, I wasn’t about to risk discovering what other laws they might be willing to break. Bummer of an ending to an otherwise wonderful nature experience.

Nice walk along the seashore. Surrounded by beautiful resorts.

I love this simple picturesque walk.
