  • A must see. Must. I was instantly drawn to this park and beach. Lots of parking, nice playground area, the beach is well maintained and beautiful. It was quiet with little to no traffic and plenty of space to set up on the beach. I imagine this will be a busy active area with warmer weather and tourist season upon us.
  • Great place to come get some rays on the beach or just relax with some friends. If you like to fish they have fishing off of the road leading to the beach. You do have to pay for parking but it isn't bad, after all who can put a price on getting tan and having a fun day. Awesome place to visit, highly recommended!
