Visited earlier this month. The wild cactis were flowering in the dunes. The gazebo covered picnic table areas provided a break from the sun, and the beach and comfort facilities were clean.

Nice size parking lot. Short walk to a beautiful beach that we had a nice 3 mile walk on. Lots of shells. Very peaceful. Not many people there. There are covered picnic tables and bathrooms with changing stations. Will definitely go back!

Technically No. However there is camping in the parking area. We have seen camping on the beach but the Sheriff's department may ask you to leave. This area is heavily patrolled.
