Beautiful beach, great apartments to rent by the day or week, restaurants close by. I go there at least once every other year for the past 50 years. Obviously I like it.

This beach is fabulous and very quiet when we were there. Not many facilities on the beach and very uncluttered. You can walk for a mile or so and feel that you have it to yourself. Great to watch the pelicans fishing as well.
