The road to get there is sinuous but nice. However, is very difficult to find the entrance to the beach. I suggest to park on the left side of the road just passing the creek bridge. It has a playground on the corner. They don’t...More

This was our favorite beach. We were able to spend the day, and had lunch at one of the restaurants right on the beach. We loved staying there and would go back in a heart beat.
