Fodor's Review

The 2½-mile road to this quiet, secluded little gem feels like you're venturing off the beaten path. The area is rich in history, with remnants of an old steamship pier testifying to its former role as a thriving port. Frequented mostly by locals, the beach is usually only crowded on weekends. It has a clean, soft mix of dark brown and gray sand and is backed by steep embankments. The bay is usually calm, with small surf, good for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and diving. A community-county park partnership oversees the beach concessions, issues camping permits, and rents camp gear. Trails along the shoreline make for good exploring. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.
