  • Really enjoyed my stay. It is roughly 30 minutes from "civilization. " it was sunrise and sunset. The cabin was great. The beach is nice for walking, do wear shoes. It is very silty there, so don't expect a sandy beach. Wild hogs, birds, dragon flies and biting insects are in abundance. Great place to get away from the world.
