“Also Known as Disapparing Sand Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Sand disappears in the winter months, Dec through Feb, but always comes back. It's a small beach popular with boogie boarders and those who like to picnic.

“Fun for body surfing/boogie boarding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Strong waves here make this a great place for body surging and boogie boarding. Not too much beach area and it can get crowded. If you get there early you will find parking and a good spot on the beach. This beach is actually called Magic Sands by the locals, so if you need to ask directions that's what you should call it.

“White sand beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Beach wasnt huge but akk in all it was usable and conveniently located? Sand isn't too fine so it isn't the best place for sunbathing.
