“A little disappointed”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We love to support sustaining green areas & this was no exception....we only wanted to really walk the beach which we could have done from any of the plethora of adjacent accesses to the same beach. It was cold & windy so no-one really there we were one of less than 5 cars in there. There are protected dunes & a separate camping area but all a bit lack lustre really.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We were there just after a big storm ....the beach was still beautiful! The water was a little churned up but still nice. The bathrooms were clean & the parking area was well maintained.

“Beautiful! White, Dunes”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Visited in the winter, white sands and almost no people to clutter it, fabulous area. Took a walk through the 3/4 mile area of coastal scrub, interesting. Nice bathrooms/ changing areas, easy parking.
