Birch Point Beach State Park

Birch Point Beach State Park

It’s a bit surprising that the crowds stay away from the beach at Birch Point State Park, because the tourist superhighway of coastal Route 1 is only six miles up the road. But stay away they do, and the sandy crescent beach at Birch Point is a great place for a picnic with a view of the Muscle Ridge Islands.
