There is a restaurant near the beach with reasonable prices, and live music. Parking on a busy Saturday was easy to find, and free. The beach had all the elements of an attractive beach - kids playing in the sand, Lovers strolling, surfers surfing, sound of waves, a park nearby to walk. It's a not to be missed beach

Love the fire pits. Always very friendly staff. Sunday brunch is my favorite here. They also have a good burger

This is an old coastside favorite hang out. Good bar, great views any time of day, funky decor, decent service. Food is good, but not outstanding.

This is a nice beach for walking with relatively easy access from the road. Stop in at the restaurant for a drink or quick bite. If you are lucky to be in town when the Bach dancing dynamite society has music, it's right up from the beach.

We came here for a photo shoot because it's lovely here. A bit windy but add to the atmosphere. I really enjoyed my outing here and the company I am with.

It was a fluke that my friend and I found this resturaunt. We had a window seat and watched the seabirds have a "Feeding Frenzy". We enjoyed our food expierience as well - good chowder, good wine, good friendship. The Miramar gave us the ambiance and service that made our experience 5 star. It's all in the eye of the... More

Miramar Beach Restaurant is the only place where you can enjoy a wonderful lunch or dinner and be right on the same level with the beach. At sunset it is beyond compare, and lately the whales and dolphins have been cavorting right in front of the restaurant, so it is a dinner show as well. OnThursday evenings there is a... More

We enjoyed walking on the beach even tho their were dead birds here and there. There must have been something that attacked them. The air was fresh and beachy there were pelicans, dolphins and of course other dogs, very well controlled. Nice. Lots of feathers...

The traffic is a nightmare to get there in the late afternoon, but a pleasant venue, with specials on a Thursday night and an acclaimed pianist on the piano. Worth a visit if in the area and reasonably priced.
