Every year the sands shift at Madaket Beach. Some years the beach is narrow, others it can be quite wide and 4 wheel drive accessible. This is one of those years. You can drive on and make your way out toward Smith Point. Deep sand is a caution, let the air out of your tires for traction. This beach faces southwest so sunsets are spectacular. A great picnic area. There are several access points to the beach. Some have parking.
