Ive been coming to this beach for 30 plus years and never had a bad experience. It's usually very clean and the people friendly. Its in a small harbor of sorts so you don't really have to worry about rough water if you plan on bringing your kids. There are also great tide pools to check out. Get there early... More

This is a fantastic day out with lots to do for families. There is a beach, woodland and of course the lighthouse which has open days when you can tour the lighthouse. You would have to check when the lighthouse is open but we were lucky enough to get inside and climb the ladder to the top where the views... More

Small secluded beach with rocks to climb on. Nice picnic area. Uncrowded and NO touristy things. Outhouses available.

Loved this park. Great rock-hopping - especially at low tide. Too cold to swim for me but there were a few little kids playing in the shallows. Went twice - once at low tide and again just as the tide was starting to go out. Was enjoying the view so much that I didn't leave enough time to do any... More

We spent the day here recently hanging out on the rocks, sunbathing and reading. This park is small and quiet- a great place to just relax. Pack a picnic lunch and find your own quiet place to enjoy the day.

Small park with beautiful views. A nice place to stop for a picnic or a short stroll. We were staying near the park and decided to stop on a raining day. My daughter enjoyed walking around on the rocks.

The beach is nice when the tide is halfway because there is plenty of sand for the kids to play in. At low tide there are lots of pools filled with crabs and other creatures that make for a fun activity. There are only 2 or 3 picnic tables with grills for cookouts and picnics. Great place to take kids.

This is a lovely little beach for a family looking to have a little sand and some rocks to rest on. There are picnic tables that one can settle on and facilities. Friendly, very clean, and great for children.
