This is a great park for viewing boats, walking a little, getting paddle board or surf lessons, hanging out. It is as popular with locals as with tourists. Lots of people swim at the beach, but I recommend going to other beaches. This one never looks clean enough to me. Due to the shape of the bay, the water doesn't get swept out to see well enough, and there's lots of city drainage into the bay. No sewage, but I don't like drainage that sticks around.
