This has a great fishing spot especially for surf casting, great fish catching but I think your need a permit for this as was with another family member who has a permit for here.

Beautiful park with lots of things to do. I liked it so much and I went there a couple of times to enjoy the beach and making a bonfire by the beach which was great. Also making BBQ in this Park is fun! Their facilities are not that bad.

Naturally, many people have forged lifelong friendships here. That being said, it has got nothing spectacular to offer especially during the... More
