Love the beach here, with caves and a waterfall. Great place to take a walk, have a picnic, or fly a kite!

We took a long walk to Hug Point. It was gorgeous, and not super busy. We really liked the rock walls and formations. Beautiful!

Gorgeous small beach. Waterfall and sea caves. Beach is secluded and almost empty in the fall. Scenery is gorgeous and one of the best stops along the coast.

Fabulous beach...not as many people as other beaches. Limited parking ....only park where permitted as park rangers issue fines. Check tide times as beach can be cut off if exploring caves .

Hug Point is a nice small place. But be CAREFUL! If you have small children, I would be very cautious about going here. Do not get caught in the tide rolling in, especially near the cave area.

Nice beach. Easy walk to get too. Very small parking lot. But go right at beach and see the caves, small waterfall and the point. It was intriguing to think about the days when they had to take a wagon or car around the point....More

Find this gem of a beach before the day's tourism peaks and enjoy spectacular coastal views, hidden sea caves, dramatic waves, tide pool life and even a lovely little waterfall! Get there at low tide and you'll see an old stage road in a rock...More

I would say it depends on the limited mobility. The road down to the beach is paved and a little steep. There are a few wooden steps to go down. Once you are down at the beach you can walk to the rocks and peak in a few of... More

I'm not sure the official answer but we did see some people that started a fire inside one of the caves.
