This was a great beach. Lots of birds and wildlife. The fish were jumping everywhere. It was off season so it was empty and very relaxing .

You need to cross the lagoon which can be waist high at high tide to get to the best part. Maybe thats what keeps the tourists away!

We thought this was an actual beach. It is not. We got there around 11:30 am and it was mucky, no sand and very smelly. If you want to kayak or canoe then it's perfect. Just not for a "beach" experience.

This was a long walk, but once we got around to the area where the shells were, this was an awesome spot!

Great beach with white soft sand easy to get to worth the trip to spend quality time enjoying the surf and sand. Take a chair and umbrella enjoy a a nice picnic lunch or dinner watching the sunset in the evening.
