My husband and I enjoy watching the sunset on winter nights on Red River Beach. They are spectacular!!! Also you can find lots of sea-glass on the beach. Often find a dozen pieces each time.

One of the few beaches that you can drive right to the beach and the sand is near your car. Great for elderly or people carrying a lot of stuff. It is a long beach, clean, but you need a Harwich Beach sticker. It has...More
