This popular day use area provides opportunities for most visitors. These twelve parking areas start out with two sand access lots for off highway vehicles. There are also six lots providing excellent access to the beach. Two other parking areas are open viewpoints of wetlands for great wildlife observation. Visitors will also find the crab dock that provides opportunities to enjoy a day of crabbing or fishing. Near the jetty our final two lots marks the location of the 1979 beaching of 41 sperm whales. Adventure, education, solitude or relaxation, all this and more can be found at the South Jetty.
Whale Memorial Trailhead is located at this Day Use Site.
