This was recommended by a friend. The walk through the woods was very nice and we even learned a few things. When you get to the beach the views were amazing. Well worth the short walk.

Nice area to swim. Be sure to see Sam Jones buried next to his horse. Watch for snakes in the summer; mosquitoes not bad. Very nice stroll.

Short walk through the woods to get to a fantastic little beach. We biked over, no parking on the street. Tons of hermit crabs over on the rocks. Very cool spot.
