We came here instead of Myrtle Beach. What a mistake. Most of the Beach was closed for a festival in a week so you had to walk blocks to get to the beach. Will not come again.

The beach is very family friendly and safe. It depends on the weather on how rough the waves are. They will put out weather advisors if the waves are too rough.
