We had a great time at the beach. We experienced both high and low tide. Swimming against the current during low tide was fun! It reminded me of an aqua spa. I would swim for about 45 seconds but only went 10-12 feet! We found a lot of beautiful seashells! We enjoyed our time at SSI! We will definitely be returning!

Unspoiled beach that was not crowded. We didn't find shells but the area is gorgeous and makes for a peaceful day on the beach.

Makes for a nice enjoyable day with the family at the beach . You’ll see pelicans, fish, crabs , jellyfish ( and feel ouch!), and dolphins. Also a a vendor going up and down the beach selling Italian ice. Take and umbrella, chairs, snacks / drinks and make a day if it . There are no changing facilities or restrooms. Bring a separate bag to put your garbage in as there are no garbage cans on the beach only at the parking lot entrance.

We packed our things to stay the afternoon and evening at this beach and were not disappointed. Our vacation was during an uptick of the Corona virus in the area; but the beach had people on it but it wasn't crowded at all. It was breezy, quiet and beautiful. I have been to many beaches and was surprised by the color of the water. It is rich in nutrients for the ocean dwelling creatures so the water is very brown in color. It wasn't off-putting to me but I thought I would mention it if you were expecting white sand beaches with crystal clear blue water. We brought snorkels not knowing about the water color and left them in the car. Another thing that was nicely surprising is the amount of sand dollars on the beaches. I had never seen so many sand dollars in one place! This is a great beach to take a stroll. Lifeguards are on duty until 5 p.m. Alcoholic beverages are allowed outside of glass containers, floats are also allowed. Bring your own chairs and umbrella.

Have visited this beach for over 30 years. Always seem to find sea life here. And it varies. Recent trip was marked by hermit crabs. Hundreds of them. Other times we have found dozens of horse shoe crabs, the next time it was sand dollars, another visit it was star fish. Great place for kids and those who just want to lounge around in the calm waters. Parking can be an issue.
