I came here as a child and wanted to show my friend this hiddeb gem. The best part is low tide when the 3/4 mile sandbar is exposed and you can look for sand dollars. He was in awe.

Wingersheek is an awesome place for families. There is rock climbing and when the tide is out you can walk out so far. You can find sand dollars too but don’t forget to throw them back.
