We love to spend Suday mornings walking at this park and out on the beach as the sand beach is very large when tide is out,and there is always a chance of viewing eagles and Brant geese

With extremely low tides, the beach went on forever. We found rocks we don't have at home and had eagles overhead. A regional treasure!

Went 3 times over 3 days as so relaxing and easy to get to. Lots of picnic areas and plenty of restrooms. The beach is not dog friendly but if you go just out of the park you can take your dog on the beach....More

Walked out at low tide to look for shells and watched the little craps and slugs moving and running. Had a great time.

After a lot of money for a piece of dirt we found the ocean walked off completely by trees. Expensive beyond words and you mostly have to pay a reservation fee. Dark, wet and primitive

Walking the footpath along the edge of the beach was beautiful.The riparian areas were replanted and protected with split rail fences. Very charming.

We had a great couple of days walking the long beaches at Rathtrevor Park. Although we were surprised that we didn’t find very much sea glass or other combing treasures. And the camp sites were amazing. We didn’t camp, but would really love to come...More
