  • Have to walk in the sand a bit if you want to go up in it. There is a great view of it from the road though. It is only $5 to climb the stairs to the top. Neat experience.  more »
  • I enjoyed walking out to the lighthouse. However it was red tide and there were hundreds of dead jellyfish washed up on the beach near the lighthouse which was sad.  more »
