Beautiful quiet beach, water is gorgeous clear blue, snorkeling is great around the rocks, you tend to see small tropical fish. Lots of sharks teeth, it even has a nice park for kids, and a walking trail, along with fitness area along the trail. A must visit

We did some research before coming here so that we'd be prepared. Screens are a must if you want to find shark teeth. I brought a kitchen colander (lol), but did find quite a few teeth, then a local gave us some screens that someone had given away and we were able to find them quicker! I'd recommend also bringing...

I was very disappointed at first, not finding any teeth. But a local gave me a shovel screen and WOW!!!!!....30-40 teeth in 1 hour. These aren't big teeth, most smaller than a finger nail. Bring the right equipment and it will make all the difference in the world. The water is a little choppy and the sand more of a... More

Fantastic long beach with great sand quality, turquoise water, the opportunity to find lots of beautiful shells and prehistoric shark teeth and the depth drops off slowly. Add to this that there were few people there and it was simply a great day for my wife and I!

Beautiful beach! Great sunsets. Best beach to look for sharks teeth. Plenty of parking, but unfortunately last week when I was there 2 cars got windows smashed out and robbed. I recommend leaving any valuables at home.

We had a great afternoon hunting shark teeth. We were at the beach for about 3 hours and found 55, mostly small black or brown, shark teeth. We plan to go back there again with our grandchildren.

Snorkeling, skin diving, swimming, or just looking for shark's teeth-- this place has it all. Plus trails and a playground. Some even fish off the little bridge. Great place for family activities! Just be careful on the rocks. No life guards are around. But a beautiful place to see.

Take an umbrella and wear plenty of sun screen. Relax and enjoy the views. Nice bathroom, clean and no problems.
