I love this beach. It is one of my faves. With the bus running on season, it is easy to get to by bike, car or bus. The surf here is great! There is a drop however that makes it hard to get out of the water without getting banged up a bit unless you either have a float of some sort, or you go when the tide is calm. When the waves are high, it is really rough and there is a riptide. Young children should be well supervised. The lifeguards were doing a lot of chatting the day I was there. Pay attention to your own kids! There are restrooms and a snack bar at this beach. It is a bit of a walk to get from there down to the waterfront, but once you are settled, it really is heavenly.
