Nice spot for a sunrise, it was a little cold during this month but we loved it. It was my girlfriend's first time here and she loved it.

Able to drive around and see the beach, and watch others fish. Inside the park is the Coastal Living Lab which is free and has many examples of shells, fish, and other sea life.

Liked everything about it. We had a picnic lunch and mainly walked around to just enjoy the area. Will probably take our travel trailer the next time we visit.
