This beach is huge and has perfect sand! There is actually a lot of benches too. You can easily walk to town from this location. Bathrooms are on site as well (real bathrooms).

Beautiful day after a busy Labor Day of fun! We've come here several times a year for many years now. Always a great time and relaxing beach. The only thing missing is a changing area and clean restroom. Outhouses are available, but not my idea...More
