If you want to see sunset without photobombing tourists this is a perfect spot for a romanticly secluded sunset. Take a long walk on the beach that seems to stretch for miles... bring a blanket and a camera... the birds won't disappoint you ;)

Have always loved walking along Caspersen. it has has gotten pretty well beaten up by beach erosion so, in parts, you need to keep an eye on when high tide comes in.

Beach sitting is a bit too crowded for me---felt like we were on top of people around us. Just not enough beach left.

Great finds of shark teeth on the beach. Parking is tricky late, but who cares. Get here early, go home when it's hot. Geez. Good for kids. Lots of locals. Not too touristy. No food facilities though, and use the bathroom before you start hiking as there's nothing down the beach.

A fun place to spend the day looking for shark teeth. Not a great beach for little children as it gets deep quick and the waves are strong. Get there early as parking is limited.

We only spent a few hours but it was enough time to find a few great specimens. Forgot to bring a sifter, but will definitely remember next time. A little rocky. Not the best for small children because of limited good sand to play in but great for fossil hunting.

Erosion has shortened the beach where at high tide it maybe only 50 feet wide if that. Drop off is quick maybe 2 ft. Water great. Shark teeth abundant happy searching.
