this place was a great discovery. Amazing views of the bay and beautiful walks in mangrove forests. The view from the tower was great. Only wish was that it stayed open a little later than 8:30 so I could see more of the sunset.

Nice quiet place to sit by the water. There are quite a few interesting little trails, fun to explore. Even when it's busy it doesn't get terribly over crowded.

A great place to go for a quiet walk along the shore or just to sit in the sand and watch a sunset. We love watching the boats go by and the birds that rest on the shore.

Peaceful, quiet and beautiful. Good walking trails, kayaking, bird watching and fishing or just sitting and relaxing. There is a small picnic area too.
