This is an easy, but long, walk and definitely worth it. You’re basically walking down a trail alongside the road, but there are plenty of places where you can walk off the path towards the rocks that have great views of the water and of Sand Beach the more you head up.

Ocean Path trail gives you the opportunity to walk up the rocky coastline – there are plenty of places to stop and climb out on the rocks to see some spectacular views. There is also an attraction called Thunder Hole along the walk. At the end of this inlet, there is a small cavern where, when the waves come in around high tide, air and water is forced out like a clap of distant thunder. We weren’t able to experience this, but there are certain times of day where a big group shows up.
There isn’t a loop to this trail, it’s more walking down to Otter Point and then turning back around to walk the same trail back. This was good though, because you see it from a different perspective on the way back and there are things you might not have stopped for that you did on the way back.
