This is one of my favorite places to photograph. I love the little tower, and the beach feels so private.

Hidden beach, low tide is best - make sure to check because parts of this beach are inaccessible during high tide. Pirate's tower js here too and that makes for a fun photo opp!

Have a plan A, plan B and a plan C. A logistics challenge, a helluva hike; well worth the effort. There IS a "loading" area, best to take advantage of the free Memorial Day to Labor Day FREE trolleys, check schedules. Best of luck, you...More
