A short walk down to Abbotts Lagoon. This is a great place to go to a quiet beach if you aren't against having to hike a little bit for it. Along the way there are lots of flowers, wildlife, and nice view points of the lagoon.

Did this hike yesterday (April 15) and many of the wildflowers were blooming everywhere. Very easy hike past the lagoons out to the ocean with spectacular views down the coast.

We pulled up to the parking lot with our two dogs in the car and were sad to see signs indicating dogs are not allowed on this trail. If you drive down the road a few more minutes, however, you'll come to the trailhead to a trail out to Kehoe Beach, which is dog friendly.

Easy hike with a lovely view of the strange calm lagoons. Very kid friendly.

We went on an overcast day and the green rolling hills looked like Scotland. Easy, light walk, wonderful scenery, and only takes a little over an hour.
