Better parking than most other beaches....you will find a pretty wide cross-section of folks. The view of the PV peninsula makes you think of the Italian Amalfi coast.

Parking meter parking, you can park directly by the street level walking path, stairs and ramp access down to the beach, nice restrooms along the biking/walking path with excellent toilet paper, not tissue paper, and plenty of spots to sit in the beach.
