Really enjoyed this beach. Watched surfers, sea gulls, pelicans, egrets, and the ocean rolling in. A wonderful place to visit and walk.

A place earns 3 stars in my estimation, simply by the virtue of being a beach. The fourth star is earned here due to the clean facilities, beach volleyball courts, nice picnic area and big fire rings for bonfires in the sand. It gets dinged for the fifth star due to steepness of the beach (kids were in over their heads quite quickly), a lot of rocks on the water's edge, and its got a quite pricey entrance fee.

used to be an amazing beach but now it's polluted and crowded.

This is a nice place to just come visit or to camp at the camp ground steps from the beach. The best option is to visit with a group and get the group camp that is literally a step off of the main beach.

We had the group camping over the weekend. Kids had a great time. Beach is very close to the camping area. Very clean. would go there again. Very good beach for a kids/family.
