Beach is beautiful but lots of homeless people. Definitely will go back! My fiance and I loved the little shops
If you like to people watch and see some "interesting" people selling strange things, this is the place to go. You can purchase good aura, get your vibrational plane adjusted, etc etc. I guess once in your lifetime is a good thing. Great parking lots. Lots of skateboarding to watch.
