This quite unpopulated beach is one of my favorites... a short drive from Terry's corner, you can spend all day here! Plenty of parking and at high tide a wonderful beach to launch your kayaks!

Spent hours here, walking trails, having lunch and watching birds. The trails are level and in good conditions even with all the rain we have gotten this winter. The Hobbit trail was interesting. Canopy with lots of moss. Exposed roots, a good way to burn a couple hours after lunch. The beach requires a little traversing through years of driftwood... More

Such a exquisite place !! Marvelous views of salt-water, mountains, etc. And then also a walk along a dyke which makes the view even better. And then there is a walk back through the salt water marsh. Great for bird-watching. In the summer there is swimming on the sandy beach with huge amount of huge logs !! On the windy... More

Iverson Spit is a great beach with a lot of recreational opportunities. There are hikes not far from the beach (try the hobbit trail), swimming, beach combing, kayaking, bird watching (Eagles, cranes, herons, gold finches, gulls and several others) or just relaxing on the beach are all great things to do here. The beach is just a short walk from... More

This is a hidden gem that we had a great time out. The area is sandy as opposed to rocky and when the tide goes out it leave smaller pockets of water that kids of all ages can enjoy. The kids were able to go pretty far out in the water and still only be knee deep. It's a perfect... More

The entrance to get in is at the end of the road with houses to the right. Wasn't sure if we were going the right way. Cute beach and like is being said a lot of drift wood, make sure you go when the tide is out, the water was surprisingly warm, I can see why is a popular place... More

Nice and quiet. Beautiful views and lots of driftwood. Off the beaten path from regular beaches. Parking and it's free.

A small, intimate typically northwest beach, full of driftwood and all kinds of rocks and shells for exploring. Don't expect conch shells or great big recognizable ones. You'll have to look hard to find them! Previous reviewers talk about many trails, but we are not hikers. There is plenty to keep you busy in any season, or just chill out... More

Fun place to hang around on a nice sandy beach, swim and relax. Usually a little windy, so lots of people go there to fly kites! Lots of cool driftwood shelters too! You do have to be careful though because a couple years ago someone got brought out with the tide! (The coast hard got them, they where perfectly fine!)
