Light jacket weather but lots of sun on that long fishermans warf. We loved it. Make sure you wear a hat as there are lots of birds trying to steal the fishermans bait. Good restaurants along the beach area.

What can I say...it's the beach! Enjoyed walking on the pier (cost $1.00 per person). We were here in January so no walking in the water. Nice beach with several restaurants you can walk to.

A lot of things to do and see. Clean and safe area with restaurants and clubs- nice nightlife. I really like the improvements to the area from my visits there a few years ago.

Gray sand and water. If you are looking for a crystal clear water with white sand, that is not your place. Very short sand area, but calm and peaceful, perfect place to go with kids. The beach was desert, it was early December, it was very good, but maybe it would be different during the high season. All in all... More

Everyone talks about Daytona Beach,Miami Beach well I have to tell you it might not be as famous as those places but it's a great place to take your family. There are local restaurants and shopping and not to mention a beautiful clean beach and the water is warm.

This is a gem! The beaches here are always so clean. Love the super easy access, and multiple access points. I always feel safe and my stuff is secure here. Great way to beat the inland heat!
