“Great Beach on MV”
This ever-changing environment still provides an important habitat for nesting shorebirds, and a sporting challenge for the fishermen who surfcast from this popular site.

We've been coming to Norton Point for 20+ years. It's the best way to beach with kids and dogs. From breakfast on the beach to sunset dinners, it's a slice of heaven.

We've been going to Norton Point Beach since 1988 and will continue to do so until we can't drive anymore! No need to carry anything onto the beach-its all in your car. Just find a place to park and pop open your trunk. One tip...way...More
