  • This cove and coast line drive is truely amazing . There is a different formation or site to see around every corner. 
  • The beach is beautiful. You don't have a lot of tourist. This is a nice place to come to during the afternoon when the other beaches are occupied by tourist. 
  • A nice beach we came across by accident. This is just the beginning of the beautiful HW1, if you drive from North to South, I would skip this since it is not comparable to previous beauty.

  • Nice mellow hike to the edge. Then there is the edge. Very steep with breaking rock. Strong waves beneath with very little 'exploring area' at the bottom. We didn't find any jade, but most likely due to the harsh conditions in which we were looking. Got kind of scary there for a sec.
  • I enjoyed my visit to the Jade Cove on a relaxed Monday afternoon. There was nobody else around, I spent two hours exploring the trail. Certain stretches of the trail are not easily passable due to the plants, but do make it through, the view at the end of the trail is rewarding.
  • The trip was long,with no bathrooms, found some interesting samples of green materal. The rocks are very sharp climbing to the water, the trail down to the water is not a easy access beach, with hardly any room at the bottom, be aware of high tide here, you can get into trouble.
