This beach is so perfect I can't believe it's not more crowded. It has a playground and a restaurant as well as outdoor showers. It really is beautiful.

Great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Not as busy as a lot of the other beaches. It's a good day trip from the city, to get away from it all.
