Beautiful sandy beach. Great waves and lots of surfers to watch. Just a great place to spend a sun filled afternoon. Frank Island is close by and you can walk over to it when the tide is low.

The parking is hidden just off Lynn road. Seems to be a very local beach never seen so many dogs of the leash. Spent majority of a day staring into tide pools and watching surfers.

This beach is huge and the geography of it is different than the other beaches. You can walk to Frank Island on low tide which is cool. The parking is down a residential road so parking could be hampered in busier seasons but its worth it. Great place to walk your dogs!

We always come here when we are in the area. There are tidal pools in the north end of the beach. Our kids spent a lovely afternoon collecting specimens, taking pictures then releasing their little crabs, fish and other shell fish. There's also some huge star fish and sea stars on the seaward side of the rock formations. Parking is free if you can find the space. Great for families.

This beach was relaxing and uncrowded when we visited in September. We visited several times to watch the sunsets. Just take a nice stroll and enjoy yourself. There are very nice vacation rentals right on the beach, but they do not detract from the beach itself. There are restrooms in the parking area.
