Such a beautiful place to visit at any time of the day and season. If you make it when the tide is up, water shoots out of the blow holes in the floor. The sculptures were a delight to view. Paid parking is close by, along with few restaurants.
This is a beautiful area where you can enjoy playing with the waves. Highly recommended if you have kids as it's pretty safe and they will definitely have fun with the wave holes and the sprays. Very good parking located nearby. For a windy day make sure you're fully waterproof!
