  • We love to take friends and family here when they come to visit. It’s a lovely drive to get to on a nice day. There are restrooms and information in the parking lot. Even if you miss coming during low tide there’s a short walk up to a cool tree grove that reminds us of what an elven forest might be like ;) The views are nice and we’ve always seen the seals resting on the beach. We’ve even seen whales passing through. You can walk to Moss Beach which is not too far. Also, you can drive or walk to Moss Beach Distillery for some great views (on a clear day), good food and drinks.
  • I don't know about all the 5-star reviews. It's a tiny beach blocked on both sides and crowded on weekends just like what you see in some of the posted photos. It's fine for a quick stop and checking out the tide pools. If you want to spend a good couple hours or more to explore nature, there are plenty other places with similar features and much larger space.
