We love to drive out here to look around. Excellent fishing out on Great Point. We like to stop at the Wauwinet Hotel for lunch or dinner on the way out. It’s fun to see the Bay and ocean at the same time.

If you like to 4 Wheel in the sand this is the place. Allow a few hours to see and even fish a little. Make sure that you follow all the rules an you will hav a great time.

Great beach right off the road with brown-sugar-sand. Very clean and seen multiple sea-lions. Location is far away from everything.

Wauwinet is where you go to see the amazing sunsets and have a cocktail at Millie's. Very nice beach area favored by locals. Could be windy though. No rentals, bring your own umbrellas, chairs, food & beverages.

Love this beach, in all conditions. A little off the beaten path makes it less crowded and more enjoyable. Spectacular place to walk and talk

We took the Wauwinnet Hotel's jitney out to walk around the property and have a drink. The ride is free, though we gave the nice driver a tip. I"d stayed here before it had it's upscale makeover and it still has an incredible charm and...More
