Northwest Point is a great place to go bird watching. The beach and cliff coastal region, as well as the inland saline ponds, both attract birds.
Ospreys, brown pelicans, terns, American oyster catchers, gulls, green herons, yellow-crowned night herons, reddish egrets, stilts, warblers, and ducks are common sightings.

Cool spot to watch the sunset. Recommend a 4x4 vehicle to access. We were the only two people out there when we went. The road is very narrow and impossible to pass another vehicle along the majority. We stopped just short of the end as the road got more sandy and we were concerned about getting stuck in the sand. It was a short walk to the coast. The terrain is very rough and I highly recommend propper shoes and bug spray. There are two ship wrecks on the beach that are cool to check out.

This beach is definitely more remote. You drive ~4.5 kilometers (~2 miles) on a dirt road until it comes to an even tinier sand road that can only fit a small car. Based on other reviews we decided to park the car and walk the small sand road (about 15-20 minutes). Once we got to the beach there was a TON of sea grass, but we walked to the official point and the view was totally worth it. The beach was really nice and the water looked great. Overall super awesome/adventurous experience.

Awesome escape from the tourist areas. Roads narrow but a small car shouldn't have trouble (if the roads are dry). Clean blue waters, lots of birds, not ideal to swim though

Come here if you're looking for a very remote beach all to yourself! But it's a very narrow and sandy path so be cautious of you're in a economy style vehicle.

Nice place, can get there with any car, just drive slowly. Beach was empty when we got there.
