Located along the Chesapeake Bay and Dividing Creek, Hughlett Point Nature Preserve is one of the most beautiful natural beaches in the area. The preserve is a nesting site for rare shore birds and offers habitat for Bald Eagles and Osprey. It is also habitat for the federally threatened Northeastern Beach Tiger Beetle.
From the parking area, a boardwalk leads you into the woods towards the water winding through loblolly pines. It's quiet (except for the musings of the Brat Child about what various
monsters mutant spiders animals could be living in tree holes).
The beach is strewn with driftwood trees.
Looking forward to exploring Hughlett Point more in depth this fall.
