We stayed in this park on the campground. A basic but good place to stay. In the middle of the nature, next to a creek. The beach wasn't really close. The walk would have been over 30min. We took the RV and there was plenty...More

We spent the day there today. Beach was beautiful, quiet, with wonderful driftwood and white sand. I absolutely recommend avoiding the hiking trail at all costs unless you have lots of mosquito repellent!!! The massive quantities of mosquitoes were relentless !

Beautiful beach. We went at low tide hoping to find sand dollars. We didn’t but this beach is beautiful! It’d be a great place to spend the day with your family. Restrooms available.

Stretch your legs and search for shells as the sunshine and waves lap the pristine sugar sandy beach. The soft breeze, awesome clouds and gentle waves could wash all your cares away. Maybe you'll enjoy a long stroll out on the board walk where you'll...More

Sand dollars, lovely shells and quiet. The beach is clean; the restrooms are clean. Officials drive by often so it feels very safe.

My daughters and I enjoyed an afternoon here. For $5 and a short walk to the beach, this was perfect. I learned the hard way not to feed the seagulls...they turn into birds from a horror movie when you stop. Overall loved it!!!
