This beach was very clean and enjoyable. Unfortunately, we were not able to stay very long because of a storm. Very easy access and showers to wash off the sand before getting back into car.

No comparison to other Florida beaches. 2 miles from US1 & unless you must swim not worth the drive. Nice park but filled with loud groups on weekend.
