This is a must go very nice try to get there during low tide that would be my only suggestion is there’s much more to do during low tide. More room to walk around can be busy and a lot of people on the weekend

Nice and ample beach, great for surfing but not so much for little children due to its big waves. There is a great walkway for great walks while watching the surfers ride.
