Outdoor enthusiasts of all inclinations clamor to this beautiful park, which offers not only a wide variety of landscapes for physical activity but a selection of lookout points for sightseeing as well. Several thousand acres of terrain accommodate visitors on foot, horseback, and bikes, and 3½ miles of coastline proves eminently pleasurable to folks who want to swim, scuba dive, surf, and look for marine life in the tide pools. There are cottages for rent along the beach but competition is fierce and only a little less so for sunset reservations at The Beachcomber Cafe located on the sand. For a casual meal, Ruby's Shake Shack is at the top of the bluff at the end of a long flight of stairs.
