This is not a long hike, but the views are beautiful, especially when the wildflowers are blooming. Well worth stopping in if you are in the area and want to walk for half an hour or so.

When your tried of the beach and want something else to do, this is the spot, great well maintained trails that go along the salt marsh. I think the afternoon is the time of day to go here, the light is quiet magical.
