Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
At Coast Guard Beach, watch shorebirds such as plovers and terns nesting in mudflats during the warmer months, and spot harbor seals in the winter. From the sandy strand, walk down the pathway and cross the bicycle trail bridge to get to the salt marsh. In the mating season at low tide, observe the seals "hauling out" onto the marsh. Ask a park ranger to tell you more about their mating habits. Amenities include limited parking, seasonal restrooms, and a wheelchair-accessible ramp.

  • Said one of best beach in usa, but there are too many biting flies, green and black ones on the shore and on road leading to the beach from the parking lot, water is good and gentle, with refrigerated fountain
  • VERY crowded during the day! You have to take a shuttle just to get to the beach. But during the night, there is almost no-one there. I highly suggest going during the night, because of the lack of people, and because of how beautiful. You can also see the sunset from Coast Guard.
