This is the most amazing place to see. It stinks, but you can over look that. it is a nesting ground for the turtles and the driftwood is awesome. Hard to believe what salt water can do to vegetation. Worth the very short drive from...More

A must see! Very beautiful and serene. The water isn't great for swimming, but it's a nice place to explore or relax!

While its up on the north side of the island, its a pretty cool thing to see, especially if you can get out there at low tide.

As other reviews state there is no “official” parking for this beach. Just look for the other cars parked along side the road. Beach is not the best for swimming but is well worth the effort to find.

Something you need to see. Very unique beach. Unlike anything I have ever seen. Excited to attend an upcoming wedding there this evening.

Theres a nice beach with driftwood, but the star to me was the long pier which made for some photos. Make sure to get a map at the Visitors Center to find it.

There are two areas for parking right by the pathways that lead to the beach. We went during Spring Break and had no issues finding a spot.
