“Our Beach !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

Love this place.
Well maintained, clean and a fair amount of people but not crowded. Quite picturesque, especially when the cruise ships leave harbor. Pay the fee and go there.

“Great and hardly traveled”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

Stumbled upon this beach and loved it! Saw bald eagles flying and pelicans sunning on rocks. The nature trails were well maintained and beaches were amazing!

“take shoes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

If you want to swim there, take water shoes. The beach is hard on bare feet. Lovely picnic grounds and interesting fort remains to explore.
