If you've seen the Shawshank Redemption, you'll remember the last scene. That last scene was filmed here. The sand is pure white and the waters are calm. It's relatively empty, even during the busiest cruise season. But check the hours, because they're not open year round. Being a nature preserve, there are some regulations in place. There are no bathrooms or showers (obvs). No umbrellas for rent, either. Just a clean, relaxing natural preserve.
