I've always loved walking along the Moonstone beach boardwalk! This is the first I could bring my dog and stay with her there. She loved it too- especially the boardwalk walks! It was also special to get to watch the sunset!

I believe it would be wheel chair accesible, especially if you had someone to assist in getting from a paved parking site over to the boardwalk, a few feet, but uneven ground. The boardwalk is a bit bumpy, but probably... More

The board walk is about a mile long. You can enter and exit at any time. The board walk is used to protect the coastal plants.
