  • This is a wonderful, beautiful Park, yes. However, my experience was far from good. Not very much information is given on the distance between the parking lot and the beaches. It is quite the walk and if it is hot, it can be an exhaustive journey. The time I went, seaweed was strewn all over the beaches for miles. I understand that this isn’t the Park’s fault, but it made my experience worse. Amazing park for photography so I would recommend bringing a camera, just make sure you know where you’re going and how to get there before beginning.
  • Took the baby, mommy and mother in law to the beach. Wasn't crowded at all due to occupancy control. Water was amazing and beautiful. Emerald green so easy to see the bottom and the fish. Went near the pier so we got to see people fishing and everybody just enjoying themselves. We had a great time. Baby enjoyed playing in the water and I was right there with her having fun and making memories. Definitely a great place to visit!!!
