If you love the beach, you will love the secure and available space there is for beaching. The beach access offers public restrooms and closed to beach driving. This means you will not have to worry a careless driver is going to run you down.

We enjoyed this beach. It was well taken care of with regards to trash and seaweed. Also, we really liked that there was always someone of authority visible on the beach. It was either the police or life guards cruising the beach every 20 or...More

Good walking spot for elders and those with pets. Great parking lot just past the Holiday Inn with restrooms and showers. Beach itself is great except when heavy equipment is working to rearrange the sand (no kidding).
