My kids call this place - "the horse poop beach" - and for a reason. Wear shoes on your way down to the beach, but if you walk a bit you'll soon be away from any crowds. Very pretty beach, but the water is not good for smaller kids to wade in due to the strong currents & powerful waves. However you'll have all the space you need to build sand castles. It's one of the easier beaches in the area to access.
