Take ur boat and park on the beach or nearby sandbar. Spend the day soaking up the sun. Some good shelling at times also.

Enjoyed our two visits to this beach but advise you arrive early as there is very limited parking (and a $3.00 admission). Found some amazing shells and lots of shark's teeth. Great beach for a long walk.

Sure, parking is limited. The first day we had to wait a good half hr, 2nd day about 5 min. This keeps the crowds down, though some get dropped off too. Nice, long beach. A little crowded in main area, but walk down towards southern...More

The parking lot is rather small and fills quickly. The later in the day it gets the less likely you are to find a spot. The beach area is wide and plentiful. Nice park with restroom facilities. If you are looking to go to the...More

It was a short distance from the parking area to the beach so it was easy to carry our chairs, etc. Lots of shells and not too crowded with people.
