We went to have a picnic and to enjoy the beach. Beach was a bit rocky but it did not bother us. We also were looking for shells and shark teeth. Fun for all.

Because the beach front area is so popular on major holiday weekends in the summer, we do not rent the shelter then. We could not guarantee that you or your guests will make it into the park that day. Sorry.
