This beachfront is only reachable by boat. There are long beaches and many salt marshes, which it is ideal for catching fish, clams, crabs and other seafood. Camping within the dunes is a real camping experience. There are very few amenities and campers are required to bring everything they will need during their stay, including water and firewood. This is a small price to pay for the beauty and remoteness of this gorgeous beach.
