Get here early as parking is limited - but the beach is worth the visit. Shelling is abundant as we filled several plastic bags with shells. Does pose a bit of a problem as the beach is loaded with shells resulting in some difficulty walking...More

Great beach day which included a beautiful beach, great shelling, and any amazing SUNSET!! Wasnt too busy as there is a small paid parking lot. Bathrooms are available in the lot. Also had a bonus of dolphins swimming out about 50yds off shore.

This beach is beautiful and clean. Great opportunity to view the awesome sunsets that are mesmerizing! The shelling is best at low tide. Pair the two together and what a fun way to end the day.
