Beautiful beach....come in the evening or late afternoon when there are less people and less crowds. Beautiful beach...one of the nicest in the area and close to the main city. Come with your honey and stroll the beach. Wallow by the share. Walk the dog. Get the kids out of the house and be with the family!

Great family and pet friendly beach. No crowds and quiet. Arrive early for parking spots, park close to Adele Grande for bathrooms.

Not crowded but pleasantly populated. Fun with & hospitality from other beach goers nearby! No public restrooms where we landed, but the courteous One Ocean Resort fondly welcomed us entry to public facilities.

Beautiful place by the sea. Love the mini walking areas & new restaurants & shops. The whole beach area of business owners seem to be on the same page, wanting your visit to be fun. Everyone is so friendly.

Great beach - clean with plenty of trashcans & lifeguards around. Sand is nice and white with waves that are just perfect. I love this place!

We attended a surprise party and had time to revisit sites from when I lived there 20 years ago. Restaurant types have expanded and food quality has improved. A good place to walk on the beach.
