  • So beautiful.. come at highest tide or slightly after... trees half submerged on a sunny but cloudy day brings amazing light through the canopy.. and on your return loop.. you can see the difference as the tide recedes.. plenty of water.. no shops.. but there are vending machines.. drinks n snacks.. so coins are GOLD! Did the Coastal Trail.. pretty much the outer perimeter of the park n reserve.. took our time and stopped at every instance they could be wildlife or cool insects.. covered almost 7km in a bout 2+ hours..
  • Been here first time, good place for a walk, near by there is a lake as well, so can spend whole day. I noticed there is a restaurant nearby, very unique… Forgot the restaurant name…
