So pretty and love the rocks. Great times there she'll hunting and exploring. This is such an unusual beach, but the kids will love the little tidal pools and hunting for sea life.

Beautiful prestine beaches. Aqua blue water. Easy access to beaches. We were too early to see blow rocks, as high tide was not for several hours.

Loved every moment in this place with the wild waves hitting the rocks at high speed. Have never seen such scenes before on a non stormy day. Loved it and would recommend everyone who are planning to do a road trip on east coast.

We went there without knowing what to expect as it was suggested on Tripadvisor. Those splashing waves were such a pleasant surprise. We were in luck as it was a very high tide day.

We started taking visitors to this location this year. Although we didn't see the wildly spectacular scene created by the rocks at high tides, we were able to see some beautiful crashing waves none the less. High tide is a must, though the beach is...More

This is a beautiful beach and worth visiting any time, but the real magic happens during high tide. A high tide and wind that increases wave height is ideal. The waves enter the holes in the rocks and water sprays up out of the rocks....More

When it's windy and high tide it's a site to visit or on a calm day wonderful for a walk to look at the rocks and water

Interesting to visit anytime but during high tide, it is quite amazing to view. The ocean waves crash against the rocks and spray water through holes that can reach up to fifty feet. Some of the rocks and caves are tall enough to stand in....More

Even though we didn’t time our visit with high tide to see the water blowing up through the coquina rock formations, we loved our time here. Walking through the “jungle canopy” from parking lot to ocean was an unexpected bonus. You immediately forget the cares...More

Be sure to go when close to high tide. If there is no parking in the lot, don't Parkin the grass or you will be towed. Some days you have to drive past several times until parking is available.

The beach area is secluded and beautiful for walking. At high tide, children will love seeing the water spraying. Low tide is best for walking on and climbing the rocks. I’ve seen more teens and adults climbing, as the rock... More

NO. The rocks come directly to where you would stand on dry land. The waves crash into the rocks and up to the surface.
