Red, red cliffs and beach. There is a bathroom building and small playground. The beach is nice, there were very few people around when we visited. Parking is free. There's even a little natural waterfall. Not far from the bridge.

Hadn't supremely seen the redness of the sand until I visited the park! Magnificent and provides a stairway to go down to the beach!

What a great park! Make sure you take time to visit this place. Really scenic beach, the red water is very nice. Little waterfall there that you can stand under.

The wonder of splashing in reddish orange water,sliding down a bank of red mud, and be buffeted by brisk Maritime winds was thrilling for me

We tried this beach one day after reading decent reviews. The stairway down to the beach is very steep for young children. The beach also had a bad smell to it and was pretty rocky in parts. There is not a lot of room once...More
