“Found a shark tooth”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We went right after a storm so the area was a bit messy. We didn't go to swim but rather to find shark teeth. We found a really nice one! The hotel staff recommended this beach as she said that she personally finds a lot of great shark teeth there. There are a ton of large rocks on the beach area so probably not the best place to swim but ideal for finding the shark teeth.

“Looking for Shark's Teeth?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is where you'll find lots of them with just a little bit of concentration and patience. Our son has a collection numbering well over 100, gathered just during 6 or 7 jaunts to the beach for a late-morning or afternoon of fun. Surf fishing is fun in a few, obvious, segments of the beach. Great place for family and fun.

“Even in a light rain, this beach is BEAUTIFUL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This beach reminds us of Martha's Vineyard's beauty. Although cloud cover forestalled a sunset this trip, even walking the beach in the on-again/off-again misty rain was a treat. Shells abound and the picture perfect photo ops are endless. Handicap accessible walkways and restrooms, benches and easy parking plus a bike/walking trail. It's an amazing beach, don't miss it!!

“Gorgeous Sunsets Viewed Daily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Come here to relax and view the sunsets. This beach has nice sand, as good shark tooth hunting as any Venice beach, and peaceful water lapping the sand.

“Nice,Interesting Beach Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

One of the best things about this beach were the large turtles that I sw along the hiking trails near the beach area. The natural environment helps to enhance your walk along the beach.
