Although much of this stretch of coast consists of private land, almost all has been left in a wild, undeveloped state. Loma Farms is a private estate that has been left wild along the coast—with exception of a large log cabin mansion and private harbor! The coast is very rugged, and although there are a few sand beaches, most is either sandstone cliffs or volcanic bedrock coast. There are several rocky headlands that although beautiful can make for very rough conditions. This trip is a very long advanced one: 22 miles of rugged coast that must be paddled in one day, but in good weather it is a rewarding paddle well worth the effort.
