“Worth 15 minutes if you're there anyways”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

At first it seems like a cluttered, unkempt beach. Maybe even a bit dirty. But after walking around the underside of huge fallen trees for a few minutes you'll be saying to yourself "this is kinda cool!"
Not a good place to sunbathe or read a book though ...

“Primitive beach area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

This is a spot of beach which must be visited! The Driftwood is actual trees from decades of tide erosion.

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

One of the most amazing sites to see. The north side of the island slowing eroding into the sea and mother ocean taking the enormous oak trees for herself. A long and destructive but beautiful process. This is something to see!!

“driftwood indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

This was one of the most unique beaches I have ever been to. The driftwood was really cool and LARGE! We even saw a beautiful sunset and some folks horsebackriding. I'm glad the girl at our hotel recommended we go there.
