We visited on a crystal clear day; warm and sunny with a cool breeze. We parked ourselves right by the lifeguard stand. There are clean bathooms just behind it. and surf just in front of it. My kids could play here all day long.

Wander down, spend 10 minutes in the aquarium (free - donation requested) and stroke a starfish, then wander back again!

This is a fantastic location to take in the sun, ocean air, and the ambiance of the beach. There are several benches to relax with friends or loved ones and watch the wonders of the ocean and beach life. A great place to visit!
