“Beautiful Beach!!!!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Though it was chilly, the beach provides an excellent walk. We enjoyed all the dogs running in and out of the water. It was fun to watch the surfers, too.

“Beautiful Beach - well maintained”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This is a great beach just at the end of Ocean Avenue. There is a small parking lot in addition to a reasonable amount of street parking. Aside from weekends, parking is generally not a problem. On the weekends, get there before noon. This is an active but mellow California beach. Seemed to be a lot of families and people walking in the surf with their dogs. Easy to get to, it is worth the drive!

“Nice beach”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Great beach to stroll along and enjoy the waves and watch people enjoying life. My favorite part was seeing all the dogs running and playing fetch in the water. A few surfers could be seen, as well. Beautiful and scenic with a very fun vibe.

“Beautiful, clean and pet friendly beach!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Plenty of parking on Ocean Avenue then a short walk to the beach. The sand was a beautiful white and it was very well kept. The scenery was amazing. Small bathrooms with flush toilets nearby.

“Beautiful white sandy beach!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

What a beautiful spot to just sit back, relax and soak in the view! Pristine, white sand, on a beautiful sunny day... what's not to love? Took lots of pictures and enjoyed just sitting with the sand between our toes:)
