We rode our bikes here and tried to relax a bit because it was very scenic. But the insects were pretty bad, so we didn't last long. It's kind of isolated, so I don't know that I'd go alone.

Visited with my wife and enjoyed the quiet and setting, various birds attempting to find something to eat in the water and mudflats. Be sure to walk out to the end of the elevated walkways for the best views!
