“Watch out for broken glass!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Ocean Park beach is a great, long stretch of sand. During the week, it's not busy and you'll have no trouble finding a spot. Trying to find a public toilet is another story and you really need to watch your step as garbage and bits of broken glass can be found along the stretch. The embankment can also be quite steep and the undertow strong. We took refuge at Pamela's and found the service there fantastic.

“ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The water was warm the sand could have been cleaned. There were people selling $3 coronas and $2 ices. That was cool. It has been the only beach I have ever been to where the locals bring dogs to the beach.. Yuck.

“beach in residential area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

the beach was quiet (maybe because we went in october right after a storm). it's located in a residential community and we didn't feel very safe walking around the neighborhood. there is a nice long walk at the right end of the beach to Tres Palmas Inn. No food right on the beach.
