“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Lovely beach. Unfortunately there is not a single strip or piece where dogs are welcome even if you are a responsible dog owner who cleans up. Not very pet friendly for people who travel with pets and do not want to leave them in a trailer. Yet, as we drove down the road we saw three dog owners with dogs on the beach, totally ignoring the signs. We kept our dogs in the truck and skipped violating the law. Late fall so the beach was fairly empty of people (except three law breaking dog owners and a few fishermen. The National Park Service was not at the post perhaps due to sequester? or low season? Would definitely go back if we ever travel without our pups. The white sand is amazing!

“Love This Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

This beach is pristine, quite and not busy. They do have restroom facilities with picnic areas available for a gathering. More locals come here than tourists. Fishing and birdwatching are in abundance. You'll see dolphins, rays and pelicans.

“Nice 'lil gem of a beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Love visiting this beach when I'm in town. Quiet and a beautiful beach. Not busy and nice to see that it's more of a locals beach. Great place to fish as well. Bring a blanket, chair, and enjoy.

“Quiet Clean Beach with lots of Birds.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

The park ranger said I should keep quiet about this place! Its a gem. Full of history too. They have a beach wheel chair you can use if needed at no cost.
