“Great Place to have a picnic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

water is warm and nice. The place is very "Touristy". You can see a lot of animals though like Pisote (racoon like animals), Monkeys, Iguanas

“Warm and beautiful but no ammenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Super warm water and beautiful but be aware that the beach that is within MA does not have food, beverages, beach chair rentals, etc. so you must bring your own. You must go to the public beach outside MA to get ammenities

“Superb Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

One of the 10 best beaches I've seen. Long trek (1+ miles) on rocky path. Take a guide otherwise you miss the fauna & flora hidden from view in the reserve.

“Crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

Beautiful day for a beach outing. There were a lot of people trying to push you into renting a beach umbrella. Streets crowded.

“Loved this Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

I loved this beach because it was so clean and there wasn't any debris or even sticks or logs in the water crashing into you like I had experienced at other beaches. There are some stray dogs around, but they're few and harmless and my warning to you would be wary of the monkeys... The know the yellow bags from the local stores contain food and if you leave your stuff unattended they'll swoop in and grab your Pringles.
