We came for the lighthouse, enjoyed the beach next to the pier as well. We didn't explore too far away from the pier, lighthouse or beach, we did enjoy that area a lot.

A clean beach and 2 lighthouses make this a beautiful park to visit. There’s a long pier to walk as well. Obviously a well loved area as it was a beautiful and hot day so it was packed. In addition, there was a pioneer market...More
