A friend local to the area introduced me to this part of the world. We visited in late August, on a Sunday. There were not many people there, which for me, was perfect. I loved the wilderness, the peace of the salt marsh, the isolation of the area, and the birdlife.

We biked through the sanctuary and had a great time. Lots of places to watch birds, and beaches are great. This place was not crowded when we went in September so we had a lovely time. We picnicked on the beach and watched tons of shore birds. The bathrooms were immaculate compared to most public toilets.
