This place has been a bit improved as a site to visit post-hurricane. It has always been worth the little jog off the main road and the view to the west is stunning most anytime -- of course, the sunsets are always the feature.

If you're in the area, it's nice to stop at the lighthouse for the views. You can see along the coast in both directions and can watch the surfers from high above. They've also opened a little bar in one of the out buildings.
