Beautiful small neighborhood beach with a small boat launch; you need a permit from city hall to launch your boat. Limited parking and a few covered picnic areas. Great views and nice sandy swimming beach.

We enjoyed this free beach. We were able to see a horseshoe crab close to shore. The bottom can be a bit muddy but we were certainly able to overlook it for beautiful views at sunset. Plus, there weren't a ton of people milling around.

I went today and it was low tide. There was a lot of algae in the water. The have bathrooms and two crummy showers. I'm 5'4 and couldn't reach the handles. They do have a volleyball net.

A gem of a beach and it is free. Great place to hang out with family and friends. On the smaller side, but a lovely beach . They also have concerts once or twice a month. Sunsets are amazing there( hence the name)

This is definitely a locals beach - not touristy at all. No hotels, no restaurants, no nothing - just a quiet beach.

This is always a fun beach. It is quiet during the week, & on windy days there is lots of entertainment with the windsurfers using it for their base. And there is no charge; just enjoy! There are covered areas for picnicking too if you like.

Not the best beach in the area, but fair enough. Nice picnic areas, but the best of this beach is the view. There is a reason for it's named sunset beach/ the view is fantastic. As simply as that.
