Alternatively take a walk to Monkey Island. You can walk along the beach and across some rocks during low tide to reach the island, during high tide water covers the rocks and cuts the Island off from the beach. The Island has a network of trails to explore and the more adventurous can traverse the rocks on the periphery of the island.
