Like: artificial breakwater provides a calmer area for frolicking in the surf. Good for snorkeling. Soft sand just behind the breakwater.

We stayed in this area and frequented this beach every day. It was never crowded. The ocean was quite rough when we were there but it made it that much more pleasant to play in the waves.

A couple of beach bars, resturants, it is part of a nice walk north if you like walking miles of beach and sight seeing.
