  • Sandy Point is only open on weekends or when cruise ships dock but it is worth the trip. There is plenty of beach to not feel crowed and the sand in the water is not rocky. It does get deep fast so...

  • We walked down here to check out the beach and look for turtles. What a beautiful beach, water is incredible! Just realized it's a long walk from the parking area to the end!

  • Beautiful place with nice beaches but only open until 4pm on weekends and totally closed for a few months each year for turtle nesting. See my picture for hours. Friendly and helpful park ranger. Definitely worth a visit if you can time it right.
  • Stunning. Nature at its best. The water was a little too rough and current was a little strong for me, but my daughter loved it. We both loved a long walk along the shore to the point. Ranger was informative and helpful and patrolling to make sure people follow the rules. Check to make sure it is open, nature comes first here.
