This is a nice area with a good visitor center. We didn't end up paying the $10 fee since we were just looking for a place to whale watch and see the sunset. There are other places on the west side of the island that had comparable views without the parking fee.

Unfortunately our visit was interrupted with rain and fog, however we still enjoyed our time. The lighthouse is in pretty good condition and would provide great views on a clear day. I am sure this is a popular spot during the summer months.

I liked everything. The views are incredible and the hikes around are lovely. They are easy, so don't think of this place as a workout spot. There is for sure lots of trails that you can explore but they are not hard.

It's a short and easy hike from the parking area to the viewing areas, and it is well worth it! The view were amazing! We were lucky enough to get to see a seal playing around at the base of the rocks, but no whales.
