Just about had the beach to ourselves. We threw down the picnic blanket, broke out the cheese and crackers, and enjoyed a cool drink.

We frequent this beach allmost weekly in season. We have the oversands permit for the nat seashore and love this spot. We watch the whales and seals right from shore. Great spot for swimming and kayaking and sometimes fishing.

Beautiful beach! Restrooms available at parking area, matted walkways lead down to the shore, dunes are protected. Old and new Coast guard stations and light house provide nice photo ops for photographers.
