“Dirty beach!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was disappointed in this beach. The water and sand were beautiful but we had to pay to use the lounge chairs which no one warned us about ahead of time and there was garbage (raw meat containers etc..) floating up while I was in the water... gross!
