A beautiful place to go to swim, shell hunt, and have a great day. The price of $8 we felt was reasonable it is a state park. Once we were ready to get a snack we went to the "cafe". Better bring your own food and drinks and use the picnic area. We fell in love with the views and learned about the different animals that call the island home. I have recommended this park to a lot of friends who have kids as a great day trip.

Had to pay to get in to the park. 4 dollars a car plus 1 one person. The water was very clear like it is in key west. That was nice. To get into the water it was a little rocky. The rocks were smooth. They are sand bars out in the water were you can sit and enjoy the water as well.

The only complaint from our family came from my teenage daughters and that was just that the waves were not big enough. My 7 yo on the other hand loved it! They were perfect for him. I would love to go back.

This was a beautiful beach, so clean with warm blue, green waters. Was lovely to enjoy a beach where the thermostat was working as at home you need 3 layers on! Walked for miles, loved the idea of a beach for dogs as well the UK could take a few ideas from here.

After days doing parks and shopping this was a most welcome day off, well worth the drive of an hour and a half to get there. Stunning and so peaceful.
