“Wildlife viewing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We love the ocean views, the birds, and the occasional alligator glimpse! The history is interesting and the experiences are certainly unique!

“Absolutely beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very clean, peaceful, not very crowded. We walk the beach several times a week. We also alligator watch from the causeway on the way to the beach. Water is beautiful, and not very cold even in November.

“Untouched”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Beautiful untouched beach front park, including a Spanish Moorish castle like structure, Atalaya. Being untouched though, there seemed to be more pests to deal with, but maybe the lack of a winter last season had a lot to do with that. Still, it is breathtaking in it's beauty.

“Beautiful park for biking and walking on the beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Rent a beach cruiser at nearby Cyclopedia and ride the short distance on paved trails to the park. The park has restrooms, a Nature Center, and boardwalks out to the beach. The sand was too soft for cycling so we locked the bikes and walked. I have never seen such an abundance of sea life. Horseshoe crabs, starfish, and most amazing, tiny pastel colored shells that burrowed into the sand with each wave. Small fish swam in the shallows and there were many pelicans, kites, and grebes. The blue skies of October were outstanding; this is definitely the time of year to visit the Low Country - no humidity!

“A great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Easy parking, low cost, very clean, with plenty of room to stretch out. Barbecue facilities available, wildlife viewing areas (alligators - but not on the beach!)
