This beach, WOW! Gorgeous white sand, beautiful atmosphere. This place is an absolute gem. You can easily spend a few hours just walking its length and taking in the absolutely stunning shoreline.

We made a quick stop to this beach during a windy rainy morning. White sand and beautiful view. Even saw a Northern Gannet! If you are staying at a near by hotel I recommend a visit.

This place is heaven. It is usually cold, but if you catch the right conditions it is fantastic. The waters are calm, which makes for perfect snorkeling. There are lots of sanddollars, crabs, lobster, hermit crabs, coral, and seaweed columns to explore in this crystal...More
