Parlee Beach

Parlee Beach was amazing, by far the best beach I've ever been to. There are lots and lots of shrimp in the water (with a net it would probably take 2 minutes to fill a bucket), and lots of hermit crabs (if you put them close together they fight until one cowers and runs off). We also briefly picked up 2 regular sized crabs, with very hard shells which is apparently a sign that they are old and delicious. Unfortunately we didn't have any way to cook so we didn't take any of the wildlife with us. Also unfortunately when we went back the next day they tried to charge us $10 per person, and so we decided to go to the next beach along the coastal drive. As good as the others were, no other beach we went to had anywhere near as much aquatic life as this one. As well as having great wildlife, you can walk out a few hundred meters and still have water to your waist - so even so it would have been an excellent beach.
