Stopped here for the day to soak up the sunshine. Nice beach, we got the bonus of watching seals near the shore looking for food. Everyone was taking pictures and watching the seals. Pretty cool.

I do not know. The parking at the beach for me is expensive however, there is a small parking close to the beach I think right hand but is for two hours. You can go on your bike is very nice ride!
