To me, this is a must-see location. This little "island" has 2 different paths, both about 1.5 miles long each.

This is a quiet place to look at the wildlife near the beach. Not many people around so it makes it a wonderful spot to get in touch with nature.

A nice place to walk along the coastline, take pictures and relax. There are benches along the trails to take a break and rest.

This is a beautiful park right on the water with great level walks for all ages. Spectacular views as you walk. Beaches very rocky with beautiful rocks but not great for swimming unless you wear shoes.

You can stop several times on your hike and get different yet wonderful views of the ocean. I have been there a few times and have not seen lots of wildlife. One time the bunnies were out in full force which were great for a young child to view. You can walk or run most trails. Easy hiking and it... More
