If you have to be at Thor's well pile at the right time (because otherwise it lacks a bit of interest), the surroundings are still superb, and it is one of the few places where you can easily access the coast, and get close to the powerful waves of the Pacific that crash here.
This was fairly easy to get to via a parking lot across the highway to a path with stairs down to the beach. This was one of the most unusual natural sites I've seen on the coast. The natural well fills and drains with the tide and was exciting and kind of scary to watch. 😃
Amazing tide pools; full of sea stars and tadpoles. Thor's well was raging and waves came crashing up really high. Got some really beautiful shots and videos! Definitely worth the stop and walking down the trail to see this. Must see for children.
