I went during a weekday, in August, so I didn't expect a busy beach. I imagine it is much busier at other times of the year and on weekends. But it was a nice, clean, wide beach. Some covered picnic tables. Plenty of parking.

Great pier for fishing, and watch Texas surfing contest, and the restaurant has great food, but you do have to pay to get on the pier.
