We were there in the late afternoon and the visitor center was closed but we drove around and down to the beach. The scenery is beautiful - a tidal basin with grass. We didn't see any ponies. The flies and gnat were terrible along the beach but some people were out fishing.

The pristine natural beauty of the place is a wonderful experience. We were able to view wild ponies after a short and pleasant trail walk. Good for young people and seniors as well. The education center features films and exhibits to help start the exploration of the Island.

wonderful sights of wild animals like birds, horses and fish. The beach is excellent. It is a beautiful ride in the car or on a bike.
