We love this place, camp ground could really be organized better, and so much potential for making money. Wish I could run the park,, see so much waste and time going into the wrong things!

Lots of rocks on the bottom and get pushed up into the waves. My daughter got cuts from the rocks hitting her legs. The view was beautiful though

The park area was very nice and clean, with fire pits and picnic tables. Restrooms were large and included shower areas. Quaint outdoor cafe area next to the sand for a quick bite to eat or treat.
The sand was rather rocky and covered in seaweed and quite a bit of litter. The tide seemed to wash a lot of gravel sized rocks up, so standing down at the edge with the water coming up against you was rather painful (at that point you're standing on rocks, not sand, while rocks are rushing towards your legs).
Would probably check out some of the other beaches nearby next time.

Great local spot for going to the beach, enjoying campfires and sleeping in the great outdoors. Safe for small children and kids of all ages.
