Secluded beaches, hidden waterfalls, remote caves, and secret tide pools can all be found on the North Shore. The tall cliffs that line a lot of the coast serve as a barrier between the beaten path and secluded places to enjoy. Most can be reached with a rather low impact walk or hike. SeaLodge Beach.
