I'd read about this place but the timing was never right tide-wise. This time it was. So interesting! We walked the road around the point. Hard to imagine stage coaches doing the same thing.

I love this area because there is more diversity of birds and wildlife. It's a small park with 1 picnic table (there may be more in the summer but I was there in April) The path to the beach is steep.

We arrived early in the morning. The only other visitors were clam digging. Tides were low and we could walk everywhere. It was so beautiful, especially the waterfall and small caves. Wonderful beauty of nature!

I hesitate to review this beach because I really have fond feelings towards it. This beach has a great history (It used to boast a stagecoach road), and an interesting coastline. During certain times of the year it also has a sweet little waterfall. Although...More

I'm not sure the official answer but we did see some people that started a fire inside one of the caves.
