Small, quiet perfect beach. If you are looking to relax, this is the spot. Not great for people watching as the parking lot is small so it limits the number of people here.

My husband and I enjoy watching the sunset on winter nights on Red River Beach. They are spectacular!!! Also you can find lots of sea-glass on the beach. Often find a dozen pieces each time.
