People sit really close to you on this beach. Like one morning there was a woman having a wedding and people gave her no space. They sat right in front of here tent. This is very strange because there tends to be plenty of space near the back so I dont know why people cram themselves near the front. But the water is clean and salty. The one thing people with kids should be aware of is that the deepness drops off quickly so watch your kids in the water. Unfortunately that Drop off also makes it hard for us adults to get submerged. The beach is surrounded by a boardwalk with food which is also nice. Much calmer and classier than OC.
