“Snorkeling, sun and shade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Great beach for sunning and snorkeling. Pine trees provide shade and there's a concession stand and shower on premises. It's a hike if you're walking, but an easy bike ride, or drive and park.

“History I didn't know”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Definitely worth the time to investigate. Very reasonably priced. My son and I were on bikes so it was only $5 to get in. Nice preservation of history

“Good Sunset Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

There is not much information at the fort tour, but the park is a nice area for walking. The beach is rocky, but it has a great view of the sunset and boat traffic.
