This is a beautiful little spot! The house has a history and retains the flavor of the Island long before it was a tourist attractions! Clean modern restrooms and nice covered areas for a picnic are a bonus!

Nice local park. May be limited parking on busy days. We did a free naturalist guided walk on the beach after a storm surge which was the best. Loved it.
