Beautiful white sand, wonderful blue waves of the gulf slapping the coast line, plenty of parking areas and public restrooms. If I were able to live here instead of vacation, this would be my ideal area to retire in.

The beaches were great. The water was clear a majority of our stay. Only 2 times was the water clouded with seaweed, and that was when the weather got a little stormy.
