  • This beach is basically a dog park. Small dogs yapping incessantly. Large dogs lumbering around. Nobody following the 8 foot leash law, and many off leash. The sand is hard packed like concrete....  more

  • We loved this huge beach. It's a lot bigger than the lighthouse beach. Shells galore! It's very beautiful & clean. It was our favorite beach. Great for a long walk & shelling.

  • Absolutely BEAUTIFUL beach. We drive 2hrs willingly to get to this location. Why? This location has limited parking perhaps 30 spots, this means everyone has plenty of space to be with family and friends, not on top of each other. No parking on the roadside or in the grass is allowed, if there is not a parking space available you can wait it out or move on. Bonus today.....Dolphins were bobbing in the distance!!
  • We had a great time at the beach!
