Park
“Hank's beach has a beautiful path through the woods. At the 1/2 way mark there are several trails down to the beach. If you keep going straight down a hill toward the water, you'll find a beautiful beach covered in stones. When the tide is out, there are nice sandy spots. This is a popular picnic and swimming area in the summer, although on many occasions you might get it all to yourself. The water is crystal clear and the view is spectacular. ”
