Saw a few vehicles in the side of the road and decided to check it out. We were wonderfully surprised. The beach with filled with amazing trees of driftwood. Kids playing, photos made such a delightful experience.

This is a nice beach to spend a few hours. The parking is limited but the driftwood makes it an interesting beach to spend time on.
