Secluded beach in a cove accessible by a steep, rocky hike.

There's a grassy area next to the trail head (I've marked the trail head as the location of this hike on this page) where some cars can park. It probably gets full in peak season, but when we were there we only saw 1 car parked.

Don't let the short distance and small elevation gain fool you - This is not an easy hike. It's very very rocky (absolutely wear sneakers at the minimum but hiking shoes would be best) and at several spots you will have to use your hands for assistance. There's very little stable footing as a lot of the rocks are slipping and sliding all over so you really have to keep your eyes on your feet and take it slowly. It was also totally swarmed with bugs (everything from flies to large bumble bees) when we were there in early May. Not a super pleasant hike, but the cove at the bottom is beautiful. Just remember you'll be climbing up on the way back.

It wasn't very crowded when we were there in shoulder season, but I've heard it's a popular stop on day trips in the high season so it's likely more crowded June-August.
