Our hotel was right on the beach. During Memorial day it was filled with people having picnics but there was still plenty of room. Lots of activities. Restaurants in area. Thursdays there is a food truck event at night and during the morning there is a farmers market. All day people rent paddle boards or Kayaks everday of the week.... More

This was a very relaxing cam beach. There is no current for the little ones. The bathrooms were a bit scary but not the worst either.

We did not spend much time here. We were kayaking (starting from the other side of the Marina) and landed on Mother's Beach for a break. The water is REALLY dirty from all the gunk and oil in the Marina, and the sand stained with black ripples from the oil. Garbage floating around and strewn all over the beach. I... More

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
