Excellent for free sightseeing of the local Dolphins. But be aware of the wait. Check all options to determine wait times as wait can be anywhere from 15 min to 2 hours.

A day at the beach is never a bad day for me. The waves were back to back, which would have been great for boogie boards.

Beach was not crowded. School had just started. Beach debris swept up overnight. No seaweed or jelly fish present this trip. Water very clear also. You can drive on this beach which makes it convenient. We've been coming here for years and love our visits.

Beautiful wide beach-warm and clear. We saw a crab in the shallow water. We saw Pelicans, Sandpipers, Seagulls and other unknown birds. Shells and its residents were a spectacle when the tide retracted.

Beach was very clean and no seaweed. Not terribly crowded this time of year (end of August). Just what I needed for a relaxing vacation.
