There was a strong odor which could have been attributed to low tide or the abundant seaweed. We were relatively close to Black Point so maybe that is why it smelled so bad. It was fun walking the trails and seeing the dark, sparkly sand.

Nice enough place. Good facilities with food options. There was a lot of seaweed from two feet out to about seven yards offshore, but the sand was nice, surf was decent, and water was "warm enough" (70). I would go back, but would not mind checking out other spots. Parking charge is what it is, I guess.

My friends were moving out of state and wanted to visit the beach before they moved. This beach is about an hour from my house and I'd always heard good things about it.

Busy location but plenty of parking. Change areas provided with coin-operated showers. The tiny washroom needs a good scrub.

What can you say? Been there a bunch of times.. a great ocean beach. Room to move if you want.. the basic amenities needed... lots of parking... ok, crowded in the summer, but what do expect? A good all around beach.

Just love this beach for the big waves that at times can take you down. Definitely bring the body boards. Very fun! This is a great sandy beach with beautiful rocks scattered everywhere. Love this beach!
