  • What an amazing piece of history. The signs don't show you where to turn so you'll have to follow the map (there's a sign for ship wreck but not which turn off of that road). You drive out towards the...  more »

  • I love the history that is just sticking out of the sand here. This beach is a lot of fun as it is a very long beach and great for long walks. Watching the wreck rust away a little each year is fun too as i have been taking pictures of this for the last 20 years. The beach always seems to be clean and ready to explore.
  • Really neat piece of history, that you can see and touch (or climb on if that's your thing). It has changed a bit in the past several years, so see it while it's still there. It makes for great photo ops... But it's also a very cliché spot to get your senior picture taken if you are a local, I'm mean come on, you'd be joining the very long list of past students who have taken the exact same boring picture here for the past 20+ years. Just my two cents, I graduated from Warrenton High School and saw all the pictures in the school.
  • It's a beautiful wreck. This iron skeleton through which the waves crash and the setting sun burns. It's an active beach, kids running around, kites, old couples walking hand in hand. The sun sets and everyone gathers on the beach, taking pictures of the sun setting through the iron ribs of the wreck. It is said the Captain's final toast to the ship's crew was: "May God bless you, and may your bones bleach in the sands."
  • It quite and gorgeous... It sets your imagination on fire reminding you the glorious years of Peter Irerde a hundred years ago... I would recommend this place to all imaginators....
  • Amazing part of history your able to walk up to and touch. Right along the beach with nearby parking. Good stop.
