I suppose that I'm coming at this from a different point of view than other reviewers who seem to be focusing on the wonderful qualities of the beach. I was looking at it from the point of view of visiting a national park.
Just as others have said, the beach itself is lovely and quiet. We visited on a Sunday afternoon during the summer when one could reasonably expect it to be busy but it wasn't. The seashells were nice to hunt for and it was nice to see the quiet secluded beach. And yes, that was partly why we were there.
But I like to bug (I mean educate) my child by taking her to different national parks so that she can learn things and in that sense I was fairly disappointed by our visit. We got there fairly late in the afternoon and the man at the north gates said we should stop by the visitor center so we did. I asked for some information and the visitor laconically pointed out there were brochures on the wall. Okayyyy......the educational exhibit seemed to consist of a set of things you could find on the beach and a few drawers that you could pull out to look at things without much of an explanation. The volunteer later showed my daughter some turtle shells. It looked like there was an educational video that could be played but it wasn't offered or we'd have explained. I asked if there were any presentations or tours or things offered by the rangers. I was told no because school was back in session for the local school kids. No actually it wasn't for another week and in any case it was the weekend. And in any case, at every other national park that I've been to they've offered educational programing even when the schoolkids are back in school because hey grown-ups might want to learn something too! Maybe it was on a reduced schedule due to fewer visitors but still.
As a beach, it seemed nice and quiet. Rustic facilities but less crowded and nice for that reason.
As an educational opportunity, it fell really really flat.
