This is a beautiful sandy beach which will remind you of the tropics. Wonderful change facilities and a snack bar to satisfy those hunger cravings. This is a wonderful destination for families and one and all. Highly recommended.

Dogs are not allowed on national park beaches but they are allowed on the walking trails as long as they are on leashes.
