Great place for families with young kids. Kids loved running up and down the dunes. It’s a must see if you are in the area. more »
Not an easy hike. If you think of just walking through the dunes and get to the sea, well, think again. Imagine walking on a beach for two miles and back. In the section where the sand is a bit deeper. The think of blaring sun and gusty wind. Sometimes there are puddles which add wetness to your already sandy shoes. But if you are aware of it and prepared this is an amazing experience. You can run down 50 feet high steep dunes! You can avoid the deeper sand by going on top of the dunes. Just make sure that you follow the posts which mark the way. Do it on a sunny afternoon because then the light will be awesome.
An amazing, dog friendly hike! The views are amazing and this place is unlike anywhere I’ve ever been.
