A little slice of heaven on earth. Very much worth the 3hr drive to just get away and reflect and restores from the bustle and expectations in life. Also makes for a great lower body work out if one wishes to climb up and down those gloriously fine and silky sand hills.
Spectacular natural beauty! Well worth the short work for the whole family. Kids will love running up the dunes and rolling (falling) back down again. Can see the whole way to double island point and across Tim Can Inlet. Bring water if the suns out, would get a little hot on the sand.
