Botanical Beach is a great sight to visit and explore both marine habitat as well as a unique geological location. Visitors come seeking a rich experience to view the many forms of marine life including colourful starfish and sea urchins, white gooseneck barnacles and sea cucumbers. The diversity of life is simply stunning.
The area is a top choice by many to see intertidal life. In 1900 a research station was established by the University of Minnesota.
