Beautiful beach walking distance from our inn! Peaceful and uncrowded. Fun to watch the boats and some seals in the channel off the beach.

Really lovely to walk especially at low tide. Dogs allowed during off season. Here are some pics from early October of walking to the right once you enter the beach from the parking lot and walk down a bit. Beach itself is not handicap accessible. Stairs.
Such a great place!!! People are walking and smiling Parking spots are limited but you can always find one Be ready to walk barefoot Bathrooms are available Windy, and a bit exhausting if you plan to go far especially if you are with the kids because they will not be able to make 30 min walk on a sandy beach.
