This was a great way to get out of the city. The black sand beach was beautiful. We had time to walk around and take photos. I never felt rushed. The driver was informative and super funny. The hike to the waterfall was super easy for me, but I am an avid hiker. It's pretty easy going though and worth seeing the beautiful waterfall. Great trip all around!
