We always take a ride or two each year, in fact, we always take visitors there. It's a wonderful spot to really see the ocean and its marvel. It might be nice, if they could install a bench or two.

We had heard that this was a good place to snorkel, which didn't end up being the case. However, we enjoyed just hanging out at this beautiful beach. We waded around in the lukewarm water, checked out the reefs, and watched spinner sharks leap out...More

This is a nice beach with restrooms, good parking, etc. Very similar to other beaches in the area, but it does have some cool rocks at part of the beach. We went to hopefully snorkel and see some fish but the waves were too large...More

Whether you are a beach lover, or just need to see the ocean; this is a perfect spot for you to visit. It's a living reef that is constantly being preserved. Great for snorkeling, especially if you're a novice. Watch for the flags indicating rip...More

On a Tuesday morning it’s easy for parking and enjoying the beach. Found more shells than anticipated and the surf was calm. They gave life guards and that is very important.

Nice restrooms, quiet & relaxing. The area is tricky to get into, but parking was available to those who get there early.

This beach got great reviews but I am not sure why. Lots of crushed shells made for uncomfortable walking, there was very little beach available at high tide and there was a steep drop off to the water. Have been to lots of better beaches

Such a nice area and great views. Able to walk all along and great places to stay right off the beach. Would highly recommend is Beach if you come to the area!

Perfect way to spend an afternoon reading and listening to the water. There’s plenty of shade, and plenty of sun. The waves are big! Loved all the wildlife.

My first trip fishing in the ocean from the shore and it was amazing. Not the best day for catching but it didn't matter because the waves were beautiful and the colors stunning. Watching surfers, beach combing, and playing in the sand more than made...More

I doubt it - the parking area is quite small and would be difficult to park an RV there. There are bathrooms located in the parking lot, but no food or drink available on site.

Sorry, a little late with the reply. I would think it would be open at that time of the year, but I can't say for sure because we've always visited during the summer months. Best time of the day for viewing sea creatures... More
