I have to agree with the other residents that have posted comments about this area. Don't go. I always tell our visitors to pay a few bucks and go to Ft. Zachary Taylor. It is a state park so very clean, great view, clean water because of the current, bathrooms, and a concession stand. But number one reason, by FAR, is the derelicts can't hang out there all day like they do at the public beaches. Yes, we have a large homeless population but they are not the ones I am speaking of. I'm talking about the bums that sit around wasted all day and can become very aggressive and volatile when they panhandle. Because of our great weather, these guys lay around the beach all day getting high and drunk and rarely need to seek shelter. This beach is one of their favorite places, next to Higgs. It isn't even much of a beach so it wouldn't be all that great without the bums. Mostly it is a boat ramp/dock. There are nice places to go but this isn't one of them, be forewarned.
