Great location . beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

couldn't ask for a more perfect spot. beautiful sugar sand beach on a shallow bay and very few people around. Took Kayaks and a picnic basket out to the sandbar that pops up at low tide and collected shells. has to be one of the friendliest places I have ever been to .
