“Come for the rocks...but leave them behind.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Amazing beach, but don't think sand. Think rocks. Strangely soothing, smooth white rocks. When the sun warms them up you just want to hold them in your hands. The attraction has led to very strict laws about removing the rocks, so resist the temptation and leave them for future visitors to enjoy.

Never been in the water. Its always been too cold, though I understand by late August the water is warm enough for swimming. They put a raft out in the bay for swimmers.

“White polished rocks are amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The white polished rocks are amazing on the beach. There is a sign not to remove or throw the rocks although some can't read and let their kids throw the rocks. Plenty of picnic tables as nice area to swim. Very serene.

“Beautiful beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

The view is absolutely stunning! The beach is beautiful! We stopped here and had picnic and it was just an awesome fun day for all! We took lots of pictures of the gorgeous scenery. The whole place is so peaceful and you feel that you're in sync with the nature. The stones are so smooth and very interesting!
