My husband and I like to sit and watch the waves and the sea life. We have been planning on staying a day at the beach here, however we picked the wrong day. It was full. Next time for sure. We try to visit here once a month.

Went to this beach one evening from our KOA campground to watch the sunset and, WOW. Sunset was beautiful, beach was kept pretty clean, and the parking lot was also pretty clean. Didn't try the restrooms, but did note that they're available. Several families were doing big campfires on the beach.

Clean, restrooms but no showers, lots of stairs to climb or a tall ramp. It did have pits for fires which would be nice, but they were all taken.

The beach was not crowded and had a feeling of seclusion. It was clean and soft to walk along. The further you walk, the fewer people there are.Best of all, the beach is dog friendly, so take your pets to enjoy a romp along the sand. Bring your body board if the the waves are right, it's a blast to... More

Just every where right now, but they migrate around a lot. if you see little white "wings" on the beach, stay out. Those are the jelly fish skins.

I was there on a weekday. Hardly anyone else in a wide expanse of beach. A glimpse of a whale spraying off in the distance. A little windy, but beautiful sunshine. Conducive to meditation or artistic creativity, although all I did was drink in the fresh air and view.
