We were here when it was too cold to go in the water in September but good beach access to walk. Parking is limited, during summer you have to get a pass.

We arrive as the hurricane was pulling out to sea. The waves were high and wild, but the sea was beautiful against the amazing white sand beach that stretched in a long, narrow arc for about a mile.

Walked this beach. Sand was fine. View was great. Made us want to come back for a summer vacation. Met a resident who explained the benefits of the beach.

Stopped on a drive up the coast. It was a nice, small beach with ocean walls. Since it was off season, it was fully accessible. I noticed that others had said that you need passes during the summer season. Loved the peaceful stop to take in the beauty of the area.

Sitting on the seawall, watching families, pets & couple stroll the beach. A great way to spend a relaxing hour.

We parked off the road so we did not have to pay the toll. Great place to enjoy the beach and just go for a walk. Porta potty at the far end of the beach, not real convenient.

We just loved sitting on the wall and listening to the ocean. It was so peaceful. We collected lots of rocks there to put in our plants at home. Very clean beach and great area.
