Sunsets are unique everyday of the year and always available with good weather, as it faces west. A lovely, hidden path is used to access this area. We walk through natural, dense foliage and then it all opens up to this view. Brides and grooms take time before and after the marriage ceremony to pick up their favorite seashells as a wedding keepsake of their special wedding ceremony.
