Something not right?

Description

This is a pretty bay and there is a high clearance four-wheel-drive Road that goes through where the marker is. I definitely would not try this in anything but a high clearance four-wheel-drive with really good tires. Beautiful surroundings. Only drawback is is if there isn’t a breeze blowing, there are a lot of small flies present. They don’t bite, but they do love to bug you. If you hike up to the point where the marker is, you can get a cell signal.

I’ll post a map photo on a separate comment. This is a nice bay that right next to town yet very secluded. I was the only person here. The approach comes in from the north on the west side of the bay. It definitely requires a high clearance four-wheel-drive vehicle, and probably nothing bigger than a Toyota four runner or jeep grand Cherokee. The final approach to the beach is very loose and has some tight side to side clearance between large rocks. It required me locking up the rear differential to get back out and even then it was sketchy. The road actually continues across the beach to another area on the east side and that road is arguably even worse. It continues on east on this peninsula and where it ends up, I have no idea. there are salt pans in each of the areas that would be good flat places to pitch a tent, but they could get really soggy if it’s been recently wet. There’s decent snorkeling in the rocky areas on either side of the bay, but make sure if you’re out in the water that you shuffle all the time you are walking, as there are scorpion fish, and stingrays all over down here. They are not aggressive, but if you step on one, it will not be a happy Experience. Hence the shuffling as you will scare them off before they sting you. You’re only a couple of miles from town where just about everything you need would be available, but there is nothing down here in the bay and no cell service. On low tide, you can walk out to many of the points on rock shelves, but be careful as conditions can be slippery.
