When we drove early in the morning, the sun was not shining. There were lots of clouds. Still we were able to admire Frenchman Cove. No matter the weather, we could see how gorgeous it was.

A beautiful beach with white sand and beautiful turquoise water. Its lovely to have a walk round and take some photos. It wasn't very busy when we were there but I can imagine it being very busy in the summer months.

We walked around during the evening and enjoyed ourselves even though it was already getting dark. We also enjoy the restaurant nearby with the beautiful view.

Lovely drive around and beautiful views. Well worth the travel. The road leads to a variety of places and on the way into the national park. Worth it.
