This is a great beach to swim. The water is calm and you can walk out a fair ways before you can't touch the bottom. The umbrellas are only complimentary if you eat at the restaurant but the chair guy said just give him whatever tip you want. Be careful with that. Make sure that the chair guy doesn't double charge you. It was our fault really. I paid the guy $10 when my husband went to get a beer and then my husband, unaware I had paid him, also paid him $10. Again, our mistake but just be aware. Also Smokeys isn't all that great either. I have already entered a review for them. However, don't let that stop you from enjoying that beach. Next time we will take our own chairs along with a picnic lunch.
