Landing Comments:

Avoid reefs on W side of beach as you approach – visible at mid tides. Surf less at mid beach or behind a reef except at high water. Semi protected from NW, somewhat exposed to SW swell. More protected at lower tide. Mixture of sand, rounded cobbles.

Camp Comments:

Camp on upper beach.
