Very nice beach and supposedly it is one of the only beaches that you can still find sand dollars. It was not crowded and there was not any garbage around the beach.

We have been several times now over the last year. Yes it's a parking lot with hook ups. Yes it's crowded. But oh my it's wonderful! Try to get first row or last row near the naval base. Be prepared because ocean site sell out fast. We made reservations 6 months in advance.

Spent an evening here after driving over from Phoenix. Nice beach. Not very crowded. Seemed like mainly locals out for Memorial Day weekend. Nice change of pace from Mission Beach.

Nice beach. It was clean and not crowded at all. We saw some dolphins and a seal playing in the ocean. Kids really enjoyed the area. I believe it was $10 for parking.

This beach was great. Its in a state park, the parking was affordable, it wasn't crowded, had fire pits, and bathrooms, as well as lifeguards. Not much around it, so your not gonna walk to the shops and spots to eat, but worth it.

Such a lovely and simple beach! Grab lunch at the Del - as long as you are reasonably dressed. This is one of my favorite places!

Since it's a California State Park beach, you have to pay. There are a multitude of RV's on weekends and holidays, so don't expect to have a private place to yourself.

Nice clean beach with lots of parking. Faces west, towards the open ocean. Big waves and unobstructed views.

Nice beach area - quite a long stretch to walk - wide, with soft sand. Found it to be quite clean. From a distance I believe I saw some rentals for water sports, such as paddle boarding, etc.

The water is really cold, but it was a refreshing change from what I'm used to. Really had a good time here, and the scenery was just amazing. The Navy SEALs train nearby, and there's a fairly strong naval presence in the area (ships and such).
