  • Very narrow roads either way you come in, but this is truly a hidden gem. Parking lot for about 12 cars at the beach below the castle. Huge smooth rounded rocks at beach. The castle itself is not accessible as it's on private property, but makes for great pictures if on a day like today.
  • Beautiful setting, right on the water and near a quaint little stream, flowing into the ocean. Peaceful and quiet when we went. No trespassing on Castle grounds, only able to view from afar.
