“Very clean beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

Beach was very clean and excellent to walk. Water is too rough for children or poor swimmers. Might have strong under tow.

“Beautiful Soft Sand Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

This beach is large and beautiful. The sand is soft and clean and the water is so warm. Make sure to take an early morning or evening stroll, we loved it!

Beautiful with lots of walking area? Watch the fishermen early morning and the pelicans diving all day.
