“Windward Beach for big surf”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

Love this beach with the big surf. The road to this beach is not for an ordinary car. Need a vehicle that can handle large ruts and rocks. We couldn't take our usual route, had to park and walk but the walk is refreshing and view is beautiful. Go if you like big waves but be careful. Also, last week there was lots of seaweed all over the beach. We saw a whale that day.

“Not a swimming beach, but a good strolling or running beach”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

Nice for long leisurely strolls, saw runners there. Definitely not a swimming beach. Disappointed with all the trash, not really somewhere I would forage for seashells -- unless perhaps you go early morning which we did not.

Nearby were the horse stables and race track - we stopped at the stables and the attendant there was kind enough to let us greet the horses.

This is a pretty secluded beach on the windward side obviously, you will need to drive (or a long hike from one of the main roads) to get there.

Not really anywhere I would plan on "laying out" on the beach (due to the amount of trash) but decent for strolls or jogging as mentioned previously.
