This is a little man-made beach. This is ocean water, but not the ocean. It is where the boats are docked. Can be crowed on the weekends. Quite during the week. Pleasant for a walk or privacy. A lot of BBQ takes place on the weekends.

I stopped by here at lunch one day during the Farmer's Market. There were not too many people out but it was a little chilly. They do have a nice, small farmers market on Thursday mornings (which I bought my lunch from...a veggie and queso pupusa). They had plenty of seating in the shade and the area surrounding was nice...

Very calm, no waves. Picnic tables on the far end by the parking lot. Can be busy on the walkway. Dog friendly. Nice sand. Lots of room to play frisbee.

Nice beach, secluded from main beaches. Nice to walk after you have lunch or dinner at Cheesecake Factory.

There is a playground with shaded tables if you get there early enough, the little ones will love it and the parents love not being terrified if your child runs into the water - there are no waves. A friendly lifeguard reminded us to "play" within the buoys - and the kids ran into the water and ran back out... More

Small little beach tucked away near the marina, great for paddle boarding and swimming. Hotel restaurants nearby.

Nice playground if travelling with small people & need some expend some energy. Friendly locals made this a very pleasant morning with fresh air and activity, not always easy to come by when travelling.

While we didn't activate much, watching the swimmers, joggers and volley ball players enjoy themselves was great fun. Water taxi provided transportation around the marina for sight seeing.

Clean, fun & amazing beach. It had all the amenities for a beach, but because it was in the marina, it did not have the noise of the regular beach. Although a public beach, it was private and secluded. Loved it
