I bet this beach is packed all summer and hard to get to, but we were there on a Monday and Tuesday in October, with our dog, and loved it. We parked with no problem and had a whole patch of beach all to ourselves. Gorgeous beach.

Amazing wide beach area with deep soft sand. Concessions are open in the season and offer great burgers and sandwiches. Just a great family beach that never feels too crowded!
