  • Uncrowded natural beach. Took fabulous pictures here. Searched for “circle” stones. Definitely worth the drive and time  more »
  • Beautiful, scenic place to get a nice walk in. Outer loop is about 7k if I remember correctly. Some pretty spots to see the ocean & lots of shade to beat the summer heat. A must!  more »

  • Check out ALL of the trails! Spend an entire day there with your family and friends. There is so much beauty to see at the nature park -including wildlife so tame I had a squirrel climb on my shoulder while eating a sandwich on the beach. You will fall in love with this place.
  • Great park for the whole family. Playground and mazes for the kids and long walks for the parents. Beautiful view and great idea!
