Moonstone Beach reviews
Low tide, has many small tide pools to get hermit crabs and see sea anemone. Rocks are beautiful and have a chance to find moonstones. more »
Wonderful ambience here, great place to collect some rocks. Very peaceful, really neat tide pools. Usually pretty quiet and there is a lot of parking easy to be had. Worth the stay in the hotels... more »
Perfection takes time. Enjoy!
