  • We had a great time, even though it wasn't at the correct time for the loud boom. The ocean path was a great hike for setting multiple great vistas and comfortable incline through the entire trek. We recommend it for anyone with kids because the beach is just around the corner
  • Really cool spot, even at low tide it's beautiful and neat to see. Overrun by people every time we drove by and difficult to get up close. Worth stopping by if you can find parking, but there is so much other good stuff in the park.
  • Absolutely beautiful and 100% worth going to the park for. We had an amazing time and the views were unbelievable.
  • Beautiful place. You need to plan to hear the thundering hole as it only happens 2 hours before high tide and if the sea is calm you won't hear it rumble.
  • You probably will not hear the roar, it is super crowded, and quite slippery, but still a great view. The waves rolling in is quite calming
