Loved this beach! Super windy, but awesome none the less! Walking paths are all around, or you can just sit and enjoy the view from one of the park benches situated very close by!

This is not a drive through only place, it is mostly a hiking place. Very scenic and a variety of lengths of trails depending on your strength of the day. Monarch trail is probably the shortest with poems on boards along the way.
