This beach is only 7 mins from my home and I totally love to go there. The sand is white and the facilities are excellent including pavilions that can be rented for weddings

Very clean family oriented beach. Changing station, showers, bathrooms! Bring your umbrella for the sun and spend the day in the white sands!

Nice and clean beach within a 15 minute drive. Only drawback is there are no restaurants within walking distance.

Great place that's not super crowded. It's worth paying to get a park pass. Perfect spot to relax with friends/family.

Since you have to pay an entrance fee this beach doesn't get nearly as crowded as others. Probably the best spots in the area to launch a kayak for offshore fishing.

Very spacious and the crowd is always just right. It's very clean and there are plenty of walkways to access the shore.

Sunset but I would encourage you to stay after it sets and see all the crabs and experience the beauty and peace of the beach.
