Excellent beach for the locals and local hotel guests.Clean white sand, beautiful boardwalk with no honky-tonk attractions. Not a destination for day trippers. Good for adults and families with children

The fact there are only two restroom facilities located far apart (north and south) does not encourage a lot of day visitors, and for us... More

I went to see what the drink offered were. The case is past the end of the counter. Some old woman with dark hair started yelling at me... More
