“So Peaceful”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We love this beach. It is so beautiful to walk the beach or the trail above it which goes quite a ways along the coast line. We visited during low tide so we got to explore the tide pools. Breathtaking views.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

What's not to like? It's quiet and beautiful. The shore is rocky. Listen to the sound of the surf while soaking in the scent of the sea and the squawk of the gulls. Walk along the Boardwalk or sit and watch the fog roll in or the sun set.

“Very well maintained and enjoyable location”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

The walk ways make is easy to get around and protect the natural growth. Still have access to the beach but in maintained paths. Love the view and the area.

Breathtaking shoreline. So much fun to hunt for beautiful stones and seaglass. Another amazing aspect of God's creation. A must visit.

“Great Walking Beach”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

This is a great beach whether walking on the beach or on the boardwalk above. Beautiful views. Not too crowded. Lots of driftwood. One of our very favorite walking places.
