Even on rainy day, this is an exceptional beach to stop and enjoy nature. Picnic tables, no crowds, and a gorgeous waterfall. I'll be back to enjoy it in the sunshine

This beach is phenomenal. Better than the beach is the adjacent area just around the bend where you can eat your picnic lunch at one of many picnic tables, each in its own little nook. The view is so breathtaking, you'll be sorry when you...More
