It was hot the day we were here & the bugs were bad, lots of sand fleas & mosquitoes ( first encounter with the pesky insects ). The beach isn't very wide but it is long, good for a walk to stretch the legs.

This is a lovely picnic spot. It is shallow and a great place to swim. Water is cool though and can be windy.

We walked the beach for hours - all alone. The wind in your hair and the vista were calming and peaceful. It is clean, and vast. Take the time to walk it. Take the time to breathe it.
