One of the great discoveries that I made on my trip to the American West Coast was Toroweap. The viewpoint at the "bottom" of the Grand Canyon (3000 feet above the river!) This is one of the points where both sides of the canyon are closest together. Because access is rather difficult, there is a lookout prepared for the hordes of tourists, therefore, no barriers or devices that separate you from the 3,000-foot vertical drop to the Colorado River. It is a spectacular place. You can get there in an hour via a dirt track well marked and in which one can not get lost if you follow the directions. For the last 20 you need a 4x4, especially because of the height of the bumps. I recommend it!
Looking for the best views of Los Angeles, I came to this park in the heart of Hollywood. There are two paths that can take you to the top of two hills from which you have a stunning panoramic view of the city. The hike is uphill, but it's nice to take a few hours to unwind from the city and enjoy a bit of nature. In the mornings there are yoga classes and groups of runners training together. I loved the chance to go for a hike here.
We took an early-riser expedition to discover the more rugged and unspoiled coast of the island. Departing from Port Allen, the catamaran will take you floating on the Pacific, with bottlenose dolphins, humpback whales and sea turtles along the red cliffs of green meadows, where Native Hawaiians previously settled, because from here, they had access to difficult-to-catch delicacies in other waters.
The final note here ... snorkelling! I recommend the tour given by Captain Andy due to his funny stories during the trip, his friendly crew, and respect to the environment. What I mean by this is that he did not harass the whales with his boat.
Located at the foot of the lighthouse in Santa Cruz, the West Cliffs are among the most beautiful cliffs in the area and are truly unmissable during your visit to the city. They are particularly beautiful at sunset, when the light reflecting off the water gives them a special charm. Nature lovers, check them out!
Near San Simeon on the California Pacific coast, you can find truly breathtaking scenery. The verdant cliffs fall steeply, but are still different from Big Sur (another region to be found on Highway One), are the main feature, as well as, of course, the intense blue of the Pacific Ocean. One can also observe sea lions in their natural environment, lounging on the beach. You can also see the remains of the huge Hearst Castle here.
Waiahukini Beach or the Southern Cliffs are the southernmost point of Hawaii and of all the United States. There are spectacular cliffs and crystal clear water where people will spend the day picnicking and jumping into the sea for fun.
Jagged cliffs topped with wildflowers plunge into turquoise waters. A bracing Pacific Ocean breeze sculpts cypress trees into diagonal works of abstract expressionism. In the marina are working fishing boats and along Route 1 are boutique art galleries. The Sonoma and Napa vineyards are close by. This is the coast of Bodega Bay, California.
