Perfect beach to go watch the sunset. Went here with my girlfriend. We brought a bottle of wine, some cheese and crackers and just chilled out and watched the pretty sunset. Sunset was at 6:35 on 9/24/17

Absolutely breathtaking at sunset and it is a real community event! Everyone comes to see the nature show! Best beach to avoid the ocean infested with sharks!
