Be prepared to walk to this beautiful part of the beach! It is a hike unless you are renting a kayak or paddle board so not good for elderly. Great shelling though.

We spent a day on the beach. Scouring for shells and sea life. We saw dolphins just off-shore, found lots of pretty shells and enjoyed the stroll up to the tip. Its quite a walk but worth it. You do need to take great care...More

In the past few years the see has eroded art of the beach and in some points you need to go trhough the vegetation to continue walking along the beach, but it is well worth the effort

This beach is very clean, and well maintained. It does cost $8 a day to park, but there are literally hundreds of places to park in the rear that provide access to the beach (after a trek). At the main entrance there are both bathrooms,...More
