The winter season at this public beach brings ample opportunity to view a diversity of diving ducks, gulls, and other seabirds. In the spring and summer, the beach may provide an opportunity to view Atlantic bottle-nosed dolphins.
The park also has an informal kayak/canoe launch, which is located on the other side of the road and offers an access point to explore the extensive salt marshes.
