(4.8/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Take a peaceful coastal stroll and absorb expansive views over the vast ocean at Otter Cliff. From here you’re presented with fabulous photo opportunities, as countless boulders lining the shoreline emerge from beneath the water during low tide. Formerly serving as the United States Navy's radio facility, the natural rock formation rises 6.63 m (21 ft) above the level of the water, making it one of the highest coastal headlands north of Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro.

  • the sheer rock formation is incredible. The day we were there we got to experience rock climbers coming up the cliffs. Little ,ore rugged than the rest of the hike, but well worth it.  more »
  • One of my favorite spots to stop and have a picnic lunch. We love to watch the wildlife he birds and otters ect. Very peaceful place.  more »
  • Parking there is good and a great place to start your day. Sonce the loop road is only one way and people park as soon as they can, might explain why this lot was always available.  more »
