  • Beautiful sunsets. A pier for fishing. And a perfect place for walking dogs.
  • Great place to visit. Staff was very friendly and informative. The activities available for kids are great. We also went on a guided tide pool adventure that was awesome for kids and adults. I definitely recommend making a stop here for part of your trip especially if you have kids.
