We took a family trip to FL. before the school's out rush and this beach was very quiet and people were sparse. Perfect day at the beach until we all got sunburned but we went back before sundown afterwards and it was beautiful! Highly recommended!

This is a must visit - a great place for 'beaching' - swimming, surfing, sunning. For those who are not mobile they can park close and sit in their vehicle and see the surf and relax without getting in the sand. Great quiet beach....A MUST...More
