The state takes really good care of this beach. It is raked every night and kept nice. They are good about clearing the trash and the lifeguards are great.

How unfortunate to have such a beautiful sandy beach inundated with extremely sketchy people. We went after school on an Wed early evening and we saw open drug use, experienced foul language and very seedy people. Did not feel safe with young children.

Could not believe the houses on our coast drive. Love the options for beaches. One soft as powder, one black and pink sand.
