Over many years, a slow outward migration of sand has been taking place. There are many conjectures as to why, but human intervention seems to have reversed the tide (so to speak). A new man-made stone cage breakwater now extends across the bay in front of Omni Hotel. The shallow water inside the breakwater is sandy, very warm, and wave-free.... More

Love this place, more needs to be done to save the sand on the beach....but still one of my favs. A great place to walk for exercise or to stroll to watch sunrise and sunset.

Watch the Corona Commercial and that defines the experience. Snorkling is wonderful and can be enjoyed by the entire family without renting a boat. It is also safe.

We were there Jan 12 to the 19th, 2013 and enjoyed it very much. Yes, the beach is not what it used to be, but it is still wonderful!!! Very quiet, not too busy. They were working very hard to make it better while we were there. Always raking and moving sand to improve what is there. They even removed... More
