Very little parking. The beach itself is not very large. Lots of debris n seaweed was there. the parking area was more fun for the kids.

Get there before 9:00-9:30 to get a parking spot. If you don't like we did, you drop off at the beach and park a 1/2 mile away near the main roads. Still worth it. Very nice beach.

We didn't lay on the beach...we just walked our pup prior 9am and after 5pm. But it was a great beach and there is a lot to see. Enjoy this beach and keep it clean.

Great place for an after dinner walk, pretty much deserted. Just the sea and the sand and an occasional person walking their dog. A must do!

Just touring around the area and stumbled in this beautiful beach surrounded by tidal marsh. Very pretty. Seemed like it would be off the beaten path, but had quite a few visitors and fishers on this cool evening in mid-June.

No, I'm pretty sure there weren't any bathrooms. Very secluded area.
