  • Nice and sunny day for a barbecue. First come first serve for this site pick nick site. Parking space might be hard to fine, if you show up late in the day. So, bring your sun screen and your drinks of choice and enjoy the sun. Try not to bring beers, cause some park now a day don't let people bring beers and hard liquor anymore.
  • Awesome place to go for a hike. You can either choose to walk along the endless beach or hike the trails that run along the cliffs edge which is roughly about 50+ feet above the coastline. Regardless what you choose the views are both breathtaking and extremely peaceful. I would highly recommend to anyone unsure whether or not to visit. Enjoy!!
  • Very nice, dog friendly beach. A bit of a climb down to access. Not well suited if you have mobility issues.
  • Peasceful and easy access beach. One of the best I have seen
  • Nice place! $2 an hour for parking, credit card accepted.
