We stayed a short distance from this beach. Was fun watching all the dogs run about and swim in the evening. Good parking, grassy area nearby for picnics.

Our dog loved this beach! It's off leash for dogs after 4pm and it's great to have a run around up and down the awesome sand with the dog! The water was clean and the waves were small enough to have a safe swim in.
