  • Accessable only by boat, you can get away from the crowd relax on the show or explore the island
  • Had the island to ourselves last night. Launched kayaks out of Trails End Park, paddled to the inlet, and found some primitive campsites near the beach in the first cove area. Great experience all around! Will definitely be going back.
  • A critical seabird nesting area with sensitive vegetation. Leave only footprints, take only memories, and enjoy the tranquility of this very unique sanctuary.
  • Tons of foxes, nesting birds, dunes and beer cans.
  • BEAUTIFUL place! Love going here!!
