They have really worked to make this one of the best beaches in the area. There is something for all ages here. Picnic tables, barbecues, kayak launch, kids play area. But most of all go for a sunset!

This is a really nice "free" beach. Although it was pretty muched wiped out in 2017, they have re-built and added some new trees. We went in November so hardly anyone there. Water was crystal clear and very warm.

Nice clean sand beach with not too much gravel in the ocean for good swimming. Nice picnic areas, outdoor showers, changing/bathrooms. Plenty of room to throw the football around. Close to Kmart to pick up last minute supplies. Family friendly.
