We stayed at a hotel near by and this was a nice quiet beach to relax! Nice sand and a good place to swim, there is also a picnic area. On Thursday there was a small market in the parking lot with food and flower vendors. We rented paddle boards on day which was a ton of fun! There was... More

Great place to sit on the beach and let the kids play on the equipment. Just a five minute easy walk from the hotel.

Easily accessible from our hotel and great people watching! Liked the closeness to where we were staying so it was easy to reach. Went fairly early in the morning, so there were no crowds even on an 80+ degree day.

Not quite like the rolling waves of the nearby ocean but this is a great little beach particularly for kids. Very safe and secure.

The playground is great for toddlers and young children. Lots of structures to climb and slides. Their are three types of swings. It would be nice if there were more of the individual ones. It was definitely designed to keep children active, safe and happy.

The beach was small, pretty, and quiet. Pleasant but not very exciting. The beach has a great playground for small children, for whom this would be a great choice. There is also a very pretty, wheelchair-accessible walkway around the beach.

Nice beach - good for tanning and walking/jogging/running and other land activities but I wouldn't swim there. All fuel/oils/chemicals from the boats in the marina are in the water including the water from the rain water run-offs.

When the rains start in SoCal, the storm drains all exit directly into the Pacific. This renders the beaches unsuitable for about two weeks until the drains are flushed out. Unfortunately since this beach in a non tidal land locked area, it sometimes takes months for it to clean up.

Great beach for children, there's so much to do. Water is not too clean but the play area makes up for it.

Discovered this beach across from my hotel while waiting to check in. I found easy parking that does cost across the street from the beach. Nice and clean area. Folks taking a standing kayak class, yoga on boards in the water and families enjoying the swimming area. Seemingly calm water to play in. And a few well mannered small dogs... More
