  • Went sea kayaking with Team River Runner and ETC who help disabled vets & others go enjoy the water, and camped overnight. Beautiful trip. Overcast but not cold, saw bioluminescent algae on a night paddle, tons of moon jellyfish. Started at Hearts Desire beach. Great trip.
  • If you have small children this is a great beach. Wading and swimming in shallow water on 1/2 of the clean, compact beach. Plenty of picnic tables and shade. Clean restrooms are close.
