This beach has firepits and what I like about it is that the paid parking lot is right there, so no schlepping. Not to mention you can sit in your car or on the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets.

We visited a lot of beaches and this was one of my favourites. It was quiet when we visited, parking is inexpensive, nice clean beach with great views. Would definitely come back!

This is a nice small and well kept beach really close to The Ranch Hotel. Walking distance. Really easy to just bring a towel and relax.
