Reviewed August 21, 2017 via mobile

Mermaids and Minotaurs sharing life philosophies by the sea in the auspicious energies of the solar eclipse. What a gorgeous beach to walk; cliff-side luxury homes beside a beautiful, long golden sand beach dotted with occasional seashells. Life is good. And getting better every day. Thank you!

I was surprised how clean the beach was. No garbage, no seaweed and the sand is so sod. There were a lots of activities around the area including beachvolley and cafè.

I love this beach!!! It's perfect for families with kids of all ages. Life guards are actually doing their jobs. If there was any concern I saw the guards running out into the water to check on the swimmers. Very clean with showers to use and a grill to buy yummy treats. Forget your surf board no problem you can rent one!!!

We enjoyed the beach and surf but the preach was much more crowded than going south rather than north from our rental home.

We stopped by Moonlight Beach again last week. We tried the snack bar for the first time and it was really good! We both had sandwiches and water, but they also serve salads, pizza and other friendly foods. It's nice to sit at the covered tables and soak in life at this beautiful little beach, where the cool ocean breeze wafts in to cool off even the hottest day!
