San Josef Bay

On our day trip to San Josef Bay you can expect to see old growth forest along the well maintained path to an expansive soft sandy beach and various rock crop formations. Walk along the beach and listen to the Pacific Ocean waves, or explore amongst the rock formations and possible tide pools depending on the tides that day. Feel the beauty of the North Island and sink into its serenity.
