Great place to walk and collect shells. You will see a variety of birds,, as well as turtle nests in the Spring. Hardly ever crowded and plenty of parking. There are picnic pavilions near the parking.

why did someone say you cannot swim at this state park? we are staying there in june and wanted to book some more dates but if you cannot swim that means you cannot get close to the beach itself right

There is a beach on the park side. Follow the safety instructions on the water conditions signs. Check with the park rangers at the entrance for specific information.
For the drive on beach, does your car have to be 4x4?
