This is a beautiful beach.....clean. There were trails and boardwalks . Enjoyed the Red sandstone Cliffs too. Plenty of parking too. Since it was the off season, the rest rooms were not open. Enjoyed the hiking in the area!

Cavendish was different from any beach I've ever visited. Red sandstone cliffs and a nice beach. Plenty of parking and good hiking. We went in mid-September and it was not crowded.

We walked for 20 mins to the beach. The trail was fantastic. And there were still some wild raspberries left for the season. We didn’t get into the water since it was quite a cloudy day and we didn’t want to get cold. But just...More
