This is a beautiful beach with shell finds. Parking is a real big problem because of space. If uou get a legal spot it is $4 per hour. Legal parking is a big tow zone. Go early and enjoy

Visited the west coast for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. Very clean beaches, with sparse crowds. Pay to park was easy to deal with and the restrooms were clean and safe.

Got together with friends while visiting from Ct. Had a great time, nice and clean. Great access to the beach from the gazebos. Grills are also available to beach goers.

I cant say it has soft white sand like other reviewers. We were there during red tide and there dead fish and shells that felt more like rocks than soft white sand. The views are good. It was cool watching the storm come in.

This beach is a nice place to go with families. Lots of parking, rest rooms, picnic areas and sugary sand. There’s usually a woman selling hot dogs at one of the entrances, and it’s also right next to docs beach house bar and restaurant where...More
