There is the famous natural bridge, rocks, shorebirds, and crashing waves. The park also includes a large area of coastal scrub and grasslands, and Moore Creek which flows through the park, forming freshwater wetlands and a salt marsh before it reaches the sea. We will eat our bag lunches at the picnic tables which overlook the ocean.
