It was very easy, wooded and we did not see anyone else.

More brush than trees, but there were enough to shield some of the wind.

Wind, rain, sand! Who had the dumb idea to hike the beach in the winter? Maybe some other time.

Probably a better hike for fall. It was almost Christmas and we got caught in the cold blowing rain. It is too long for the punch. If we had seen the horses maybe I would have enjoyed it more.

Came here in December and it was very quiet. Only a few fishermen. Great walk along the beach. Temperature was good for a walk and no wind was blowing so we loved it. Clean beaches.

Absolutely love it there! I go every fall..

There was a nice breeze blowing across the island for the entire walk.

I enjoyed the walk and would love to do it again in the winter when the bugs are not working.
