  • We drove all the way down the shore till we couldn't anymore and came to a National park and a free entrance. We took the free entrance and camped out for a night. I couldn't do more than that since.....  more »
  • Amazing time and place.... Loved the beach and easy access to everything. Great German Bakery and Poke restaurant.  more »

  • Love the island. Not thrilled with the changes made.. used to be free to go and camp now they have patrols of people charging you to park.
  • Your experience will vary with the weather and your mood. It has the potential to be excellent.
