Breathtaking park when you aren't in the middle of people on the beach. Take time to go and see the statue of Jesus facing the water and relax. Beautiful place to see people fishing as well.

Very clean, the water was also very clean, it was very clear, enough for my sister to be able to see little fish swimming around through the waves.

We had a great time fishing at the jetties. I think the annual fee of $100 is too much and you have to use the same vehicle. If you want to use another vehicle it will be either $10 a day or $100 annual fee, no placards to use on a different vehicle. Another issue is that you can only... More

This is a great family beach. There is a 10 dollar charge to get in, and they do take debit and credit cards at one of the gates. The beach is pretty clean and they do have life guards. There is a couple of pavilions to eat lunch at if you bring it. There are also food vendors, and showers... More

Spent many wonderful winters in the park until we sold our motor home. All the park employees are so friendly and accommodating. Still walk the beach down there almost daily. The facilities are clean.

Spent several hours there today! Worth every penny of the 10 dollar charge! The shower area was clean and the water pressure was great. Hubby and I parked close by, trekked it in with our own seating and cooler, and enjoyed the water, sunshine, and breezes. The beach was clean, not packed with people, and the snack area was open...
