“Cool spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Amazing one of a kind views! The rocks are polished and perfectly round and flat. The water has a blue/clear look that is one of a kind.

“Come for the rocks...but leave them behind.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Amazing beach, but don't think sand. Think rocks. Strangely soothing, smooth white rocks. When the sun warms them up you just want to hold them in your hands. The attraction has led to very strict laws about removing the rocks, so resist the temptation and leave them for future visitors to enjoy.

Never been in the water. Its always been too cold, though I understand by late August the water is warm enough for swimming. They put a raft out in the bay for swimmers.

“White polished rocks are amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The white polished rocks are amazing on the beach. There is a sign not to remove or throw the rocks although some can't read and let their kids throw the rocks. Plenty of picnic tables as nice area to swim. Very serene.
