This is a must for local photos. Come here at sunset for amazing photos and a nice beach to walk . The waves are pretty small and the beach is level for walking

This is a view only place. A nice place to see. In clear and sunny weather this place is amazing. A must see along the Crescent City coastline. Bring a picnic and eat in your car or throw out a blanket on the beach.
