We walked this beach for about an hour and combed the beach for cool drift wood pieces for our garden at home. Great place for a swim as well as the water is very calm but chilly.

This rain forest beach is very nice. Take rain gear and enjoy. The beach itself is very nice. Why not pack a picnic lunch?

Road is rough but easily navigable. Approximately 2 Km (I don't recall ) to the trailhead. Drive in, take it slow.
