  • Excellent beach! We came here at the end of our vacation and had an awesome time. There is a good amount of parking and a visitor kiosk, (while the visitor center is closed) but the bathrooms are port-a-potties, even though the actual bathrooms are only accessible from the outside and are single person. The walk to the trail to the beach goes on the road and it's a bit hard to see as we passed it the first time. Once you get to the beach it is beautiful. There is informative signs and plenty of birds and some crabs. We didn't see any seals, but maybe it wasn't the a good day for it or something. I would definitely recommend!
