Parking here was not a problem for us (arrived around 11:30AM). A little harder snorkeling for the kids (9 and 6) but they loved jumping off the tree that sits out in the ocean and into the water.

This a great beach especially for families with small children., Little to no waves...has picnic benches and restrooms. Sandy bottom with trees and shade to escape the sun. A great beach to sit back, relax, and enjoy paradise!

Depends on weather of course and which lot you park in but there are flat grass surfaces with natural tree debris on them that one can ambulated through. Definitely worth the visit!
