I love coming to this beach all summer. You can wade in the sandbars, miles from the shoreline. You can picnic in the shade at the firepit sites, you can explore the sealife and the tidal flats...there is so much to do.

A great beach to visit in or off season. Park outside the gate when closed but don't block access. The walk in and out is short and pleasant. The beach here can be rocky or sandy with several exposed sand bars at low tide. You...More

Nice shallow beach with multiple sandbars. Lifeguards during peak summer only. Ample parking and restrooms with outdoor showers. Only the far end of the beach has sand. Great for little kids and older kids for exploring!

A beach with several sand bars at low tide that allow you go our a very far distance from shore. Be careful for the incoming time so you are not stranding in water too deep. Picnic facilities, bathhouse, restrooms and parking are all available.

We spent about 15 minutes walking around the park. It was very rocky and the children had a difficult time manuvering around the rocks. We didn't find much to do. We should have taken notice of the empty parking lot and the sign that stated...More
