Shipwreck Beach

Shipwreck Beach is aptly named due to the large number of ships that have run aground on the rocky shoals that lie offshore. However, a visit can be rewarding just to view the flotsam and jetsam that wash ashore here. It is no surprise to find nets and other fishing debris. However, you might also find the remains of some of the shipwrecks.

From this spot you view an old concrete ship. Some were constructed near the end of World War I and World War II due to the shortage of steel. If you look closely, you can see that much of the concrete has eroded away, leaving only rusting rebar. A quick Google search tells me that the ship is WWII vintage and was intentionally grounded here to dispose of it.
