Beach Nature / Park
Fan Page - Moonlight Beach is a great place for almost any kind of beach activity, including swimming, surfing, sunbathing, picnicing, walking and jogging. The area just in front of the main beach is designated for swimmers only, with surfing designated to the north and south. The kelp beds a quarter mile off the beach makes this a good diving spot.
