Wonderful beach, beautiful sites (wish they'd paint the main house) but the beach is well maintained and it's a nice 30 minute walk along the path or bike path from the Visitor's center. A nice way to relax and take in the sun.

We went the Great Island Tour and it was wonderful. The David, the tour guide, was so friendly and knowledgeable of the history and nature. They provide equipment. Definitely worth doing!

There is nothing like standing at the edge of the ocean. Gorgeous views. We went early in the morning and the lack of crowds made the experience even more enjoyable. Not to be missed.

An entrance fee to what? A beach? Most beaches stop charging after Labor Day, especially if it is a state beach.
