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.
