Awesome Beach

Fantastic Beach, not much more to say though! Parking can be an issue so be sure to get there early!

At any time of the day walking on the beach is a fantastic experience. Sitting around the campfire in the evening, listening to the waves come in, watching the sun go down. What more do you want? It's so soothing!

Lovely to walk on this beach and wheelchair accessible. Surfing can be done here as well. Can be cold and windy so dress in layers.

Fantastic beach for walking. Waves crashing were incredible and majestic if not as large as those at other beaches nearby. Very restful and peaceful to visit. Lots of photo ops....be sure to take a camera!!

Long walks, lots of surfers, nice to see that there are dogs allowed on the beach. Lots of rugged coast line and photo opportunities just wrap up warm.

We were there in the rain, walked to Frank Island then watched an Osprey fishing before wandering down to watch some surfing. Plenty of parking (in May anyway)

My wife and I enjoyed our stroll along the beach and out to Frank's island. The beach is very wide with plenty of room for lots of people and we enjoyed watching the surfers, kayakers and people walking their dogs. Very nice area and I envy the people who own the beautiful homes along the beach.

This was an easily accessible beach with lots of surfers. So fun to watch! Gorgeous houses back onto the beach.

We strolled the beach at day's end to cap off an adventurous day on the water. We had spent the early afternoon on a "bear watching boat tour" and were looking to connect with nature. The tide rolling in was peaceful music to our ears,
