There is a small fee for day use, $3 per car. The beaches are gorgeous and there are several walking trails. We found several shark teeth and enjoyed the trails through the brush.

Have visited many times, found some nice shells at the end of the hike. Good idea to have water and bug spray.

It's a state park, so you have to pay to park. Come early so that you don't have to wait in line for a parking space. Bring a lunch and beverage as there are no restaurants or vendors. The walk to the end of the...More
