The beach is small, but pristine and quiet – overall, a great place for families.

A large parking lot lies adjacent to the Elizabeth Kennedy Nature Center. A total of 1½ miles of trail, dune observation platform, pond observation platform, gazebo, amphitheater, and seasonal guided programs all make this an excellent family destination.
