not much if your a civilian. No where to park and enjoy the beach, without military id you can't see or use the beaches

Absolutely beautiful with white sugar like sand. Pristine and clouds so fluffy they looked like giant white cotton balls sitting against a gorgeous blue sky day.

No dogs allowed but fishing is allowed as well as shelling. Wonderful view of the sunset and moonrise, we spent a lot of time at this beach enjoying the view and fishing. The dog was ok as long as she was in her K9 backpack.

If you are prepared to walk a bit and go early, you will have a great time. There is limited parking in the primitive areas. Crowds build on the weekend throughout the day. No concessions on the primitive parts.

The bay is brownish water but the Seashore is beautiful. They are just across a street from each other.
