  • With the Covid-19 going on you can not access the fort itself but you can walk around the grounds, the beach and take a peek inside. Well worth the time to see this slice of local history.  more »
  • Beautiful. Had some great fish tacos and lobster grilled cheese at food truck in parking lot. Went to beach at low tide, able to walk to small island before tide came up. Many rocky outcroppings but fine and sandy beach.
  • Ive been to the fort plenty of times, but didnt realize there was a parking lot on a side street with beach access! The fort is fun for a short visit, especially if you're into history. The fort parking lot is often full, and the road is pretty narrow. A very pretty place though, especially the beach when the tide is out!
