“Parking Passes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a very nice beach, it's gets pretty crowded by the entrance, but if you walk down a little bit it is much less crowded. There is also a snack bar which is nice, just burgers and stuff. The one downside about this beach is that they only give out 40 parking passes a day to non-residents. So you need to get there on the earlier side (probably anytime before noon will work) in order to get a parking pass. Otherwise you will either have to walk from town or take the Free Ride shuttle, which can be a hassle because then you cannot come/go whenever you want.
