Salt and pepper sand. Poor swimming due to strong currents. Often crowded due to the boat launch in the area. Follow the trail to the right of the boat launch for about 150 yards to a natural, warm pool. If visiting the pool, bring mosquito repellent as it is surrounded by tropical jungle.

Beautiful, 13 acre park with grove of ironwood trees. Extremely dangerous swimming. If walking the beach, pay close attention to the ocean as waves are unpredictable. Great picnic spot with excellent fishing. If camping, keep watch of your valuables.
