High end. This was a lovely spot to sit for a drink and watch the water and setting sun. Quiet and clean. Felt like o was at a beach club in the tropics. Sunset was absolutely gorgeous!!

Trekked all the way to visit this beach with my kids because the photos from various sites made it look quaint and appealing. What a huge disappointment! My kids called it “ghetto”- trash everywhere, faded “pink” umbrellas, no water access. Don’t bother. We should have...More

Wasn’t really impressed by this beach, more of just a place to relax, chill and tan. Doesn’t offer much, but could be good for children.

Walked my kids a half hour to see the pink umbrella with white sand beach. Huge disappointment. There was garbage all over the sand. Chairs were broken. The splash pad was not working. They didn’t want to stay to even have lunch before the walk...More

Nice place but nothing special. The view is not special, because of the fabric in the front of the beach. I suggest to visit it during the sunrise when beach is empty.

Don't be fooled by the picture, this beach doesn't touch the water. The beach is on a pier. It is a very nice beach, but it doesn't allow water access

It's a little "beach" because the space is little and is not possible to swim. The place is good for to walk and for to take a pictures. Is quiet and you don't pay.

I was looking forward to walking along a beach and getting my feet wet, unfortunately there is no swimming at this “beach”...there is a sand area with umbrellas where people lay out to tan... this visit was a waste of time for us
