Go to the Pink Beach

mile 42.6

 

 
Drive right up to this expansive beach, Iona's Beach Scientific & Natural Area, which is bookended by cliffs, rhyolite,  and bedrock to the north and basalt to the south. Nor'easters work away at the northern cliff, breaking off shards of the pink rhyolite and wash them down shore. Once home to Twin Points Resort, the area is named after longtime owner Iona Lind. Scientific and Natural Areas [SNAs] are natural resources that are rare or of exceptional scientific and educational value.
