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.

We paid $20 to get a beach pass for the car for a week. It was well worth it! Beautiful beach away from the crowds. Restroom, changing area and lifeguards, but no snacks or shops. If you want a lot of elbow room and serenity,...More
