  • Absolutely gorgeous, especially at sunset!! Honestly, the most amazing beach I've ever been to. What makes it unique is the way the ocean and waves rolls in from different directions! Great for photography. The only thing that kept it from being perfect was it is very chilly and windy (even in late August) to the point no one was in the water though me and my kids waded in. Definitely needed a coat on to keep warm. And the tide pools were SO fun! With lots of sea life to look at including some beautiful starfish, little crabs to capture and examine for a minute, and gorgeous rocks to adventure around with the kids! There is a nice restroom (flushing toilets) just a hundred feet from the parking lot of the beach. Could change there. The path down to the beach was pretty steep but manageable.... soft sand. Truly nearly perfect.
