A beautiful park, amazing scenery. So enjoyed our day. The dirt roads were not very good, they could use some work on them. The animal life was a surprise to see so many.
Wow a natural wonder. When for a little drive and ended up spending 4 hrs exploring. Take a beach shelter some wine and nibbles and enjoy. 4 wheel drive only and entrance fee online only. Truly unspoiled coast line.
