Not a beach but more of a scenic rock coastal spot. Avoid high tide times as there is not much to see. Low tide is good for a full view. Also, steps down are not not recommended for those needing ADA compliant locations.

I loved this little secluded beach with millions of smooth round rocks ranging from huge to pebble-sized. Try to visit at low tide to see the most rocks. Definitely one of the most unique places I have been.

This was one of our favorite places in the park. The rock formations are really unique and interesting. The beach is covered in round cobblestones that has been turned and smoothed by the waves - we found some small stones on the beach that seemed...More

Nice views here. There is a causeway that separates a bay from the rest of the inlet. It's neat to see how the water level in that bay goes up and down with the tides. It goes from very full to almost empty and you...More
