“Nice beach”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Clean beach. Hard to find parking though. I didn't see any bathrooms, but my dad found some not too far away.

“Beautiful, lovely walk.”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Long, great waves, many places to park. Close to town and easy to drive to from Carlsbad. Fairly clean. No concessions thought, and restrooms are a long distance apart. But at least they have some!
