Not sure how or where people are able to snorkle here. We went specifically for that. The waves were too rough and would slam us against the rocks.

So pretty and love the rocks. Great times there she'll hunting and exploring. This is such an unusual beach, but the kids will love the little tidal pools and hunting for sea life.

Beautiful prestine beaches. Aqua blue water. Easy access to beaches. We were too early to see blow rocks, as high tide was not for several hours.

Loved every moment in this place with the wild waves hitting the rocks at high speed. Have never seen such scenes before on a non stormy day. Loved it and would recommend everyone who are planning to do a road trip on east coast.

We went there without knowing what to expect as it was suggested on Tripadvisor. Those splashing waves were such a pleasant surprise. We were in luck as it was a very high tide day.

We started taking visitors to this location this year. Although we didn't see the wildly spectacular scene created by the rocks at high tides, we were able to see some beautiful crashing waves none the less. High tide is a must, though the beach is...More

The beach area is secluded and beautiful for walking. At high tide, children will love seeing the water spraying. Low tide is best for walking on and climbing the rocks. I’ve seen more teens and adults climbing, as the rock... More

NO. The rocks come directly to where you would stand on dry land. The waves crash into the rocks and up to the surface.
