  • Great area to walk or bike in and check out the wildlife. Museum is also worth a visit . You can cover it all in 1-2 hours and nice change of pace from beachcombing.  more »
  • Great place for a sunset stroll. Has a visitors center with information on native plants and animals. Restroom and souvenirs available. You can see Mexico from here. Bird watchers paradise.  more »

  • Loved the hike out to it; about 45 minutes. You can no longer drive out to it. Saw border patrol guarding the portion where wall goes into Ocean. Saw border patrol on horseback too. Site is slightly under maintained, restrooms were operational. Nice spot for enjoying a picnic lunch. The friendship spot is only open on weekends between 10-2, maybe later. Might be something to see on a Sunday, but I was there on a Monday and it was closed.
  • Beautiful statuary nature in display. Varied species of wild flowers. Next to the beach. Safe. I even was greeted by a baby rabbit 🐇. Priceless. Took lots of pictures.
