What a great beach! There's ample parking, great shower and change rooms, and an easy boardwalk down to the beach. The sand is so soft and pink. Sculpted dunes frame the beach. Sandcastles, and a generous sandbar into the water delighted the little ones. The...More

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

Yes. It is free but you do have to pay to get into the national park as most of our beaches are on park land.
