  • When we got here, it was very windy. People seem to park their car and stack their rubbish on overflowing trash.

  • Spent about 4 hours here with family. Tide pools, and a sandy beach. The kides built a giant sand castle before it was washed away.

  • As of September 6th, 2021 this beach has millions of dead jellyfish all over it. Kind of gross, but also kind of interesting if you've never seen something like that. Otherwise the beach has a short trail down from the parking area which is not too tough except for the beach end of it which has some scrambling to do to get down. Portions of the beach are covered in a maze of rock formations about 5 to 15 ft in height which are interesting to explore. The scenic road bridge can also be seen from the beach, as can Captain Cook point. No restrooms at the Neptune North end of the beach, at least. If this information was helpful, I'd appreciate a quick like or follow. Thank you!
  • Such a sweet beach for playing on & exploring tide pools. Be mindful of the tide though, it comes in fast and high!
  • Went here on a foggy rainy day in December with my little family. It was hightide so there wasn't much exploring, but still an amazing place to enjoy! Will definitely go back on a clearer day!
  • Cute little beach access but not much of a viewpoint. No bathrooms at this location.
  • Lovely beautiful beach with characters. Long stretch with some big rocks and a creek. The ocean water is cold but the creek is not. It's a perfect beach to enjoy both! Fine soft sand to walk on.
