I love the beach and the fact that this beach has a mailbox made my trip worthwhile. Such a memorable moment for me. It was worth the walk and time. I will definitely be back!

First time visitors seem to have a fixation on visiting the Mailbox. Frankly, there's not much to see, although the journals kept in the mailbox make for interesting reading. The Mailbox is perched on the edge of a dune and there are two wood benches...More

Kindred Spirit is great. There are notebooks there where you can write down your thoughts at the time. I heard that the books are collected and put in storage somewhere.
