About this spot
A short, steep trail leads from the parking area down to the beach where visitors descend a fascinating rock riddled with hundred of holes created by the boring of piddock clams. On the beach find outcroppings of layered rock as you walk north to the rocky, eroded, part time, island at the end of the cove. This is one of the prime tide pooling areas for the park. Use caution when climbing around to look for the best pools, avoiding the slippery green seaweed and seagrass areas. Step only on the rock. Do not step on the barnacles or mussels. Keep track of the tide, or you may get stranded.
