I have visited this park several times and have never had a negative experience. The sunsets are incredible and it is a wonderful place to spend the day, or have a sunset walk.

This beach area took a little time to walk to but the walk was easy and beautiful. The beach area was breathtaking with drift wood everywhere. No swimming allowed but an awesome place to take pictures.

We found this gem when we first moved here last January and when we got on the beach, I expected to see dinosaurs roaming around. The old trees that are half buried have been there for years and years. Go at low tide,,,,

The place to go if you want a quiet natural beach! Blue water and very clean. Well kept secret! Clean restrooms! Wildlife but not the dangerous kind.
