We were here when it was too cold to go in the water in September but good beach access to walk. Parking is limited, during summer you have to get a pass.

We arrive as the hurricane was pulling out to sea. The waves were high and wild, but the sea was beautiful against the amazing white sand beach that stretched in a long, narrow arc for about a mile.

Walked this beach. Sand was fine. View was great. Made us want to come back for a summer vacation. Met a resident who explained the benefits of the beach.

Stopped on a drive up the coast. It was a nice, small beach with ocean walls. Since it was off season, it was fully accessible. I noticed that others had said that you need passes during the summer season. Loved the peaceful stop to take in the beauty of the area.

We made a quick stop here to take in the views of the ocean and the sound of the waves crashing in. It is obviously a very family friendly beach. It was REALLY crowded on the day we were there.

Sitting on the seawall, watching families, pets & couple stroll the beach. A great way to spend a relaxing hour.

We parked off the road so we did not have to pay the toll. Great place to enjoy the beach and just go for a walk. Porta potty at the far end of the beach, not real convenient.
