Samuel H Boardman is a long stretch of scenic views and beaches. There are several overlooks to view the ocean, beaches and natural bridges. We noticed a few trials here and there but didn't partake in any of them due to time restrictions.

As a photographer I was keen to visit this area. It is quite beautiful, with rocky headlines, sandy secluded beaches and lots of steep cliffs covered in trees. We did a big hike from Indian Sands to China Beach but unfortunately a lot of it...More
