How to Access The Beach
The beach is located on a peninsula that only has one main road that goes in a circle. If upon entering the road you head north, then the first branch off further north will take you towards Stony Horn Beach. Once you find a place to park, you will likely need to hike a little before reaching the water.

Amenities and Ambiance
