“Small Beach, Not Good for Kids”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Windansea is a surfing beach. It is rocky and not good for kids. The locals surf there, and they are unfriendly to out of towners. There is also very little parking.

“Great for watching the surfers.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Beach was just a couple of blocks away from the apartment we rented. Great for watching surfers. Quite strong waves so need to be careful with kids and when swimming.

“Local Beach not for the faint-of-heart!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Beach can be very dangerous for the novice, strong and sometimes large waves can break right at shoreline. Not the place for young kids or poor swimmers but a fun place to watch the locals knock themselves out!

“Tidepools!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Our girls loved exploring this gorgeous beach. SO fun. Do pack tennis shoes for hiking down the steep slope, then change into flipflops once your get down there.

“Beautiful but not really swimmer friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Tropical feeling slice of SoCal but bring parking patience, sunscreen and be careful where you put your towel as the high tide can reclaim real estate when you least suspect it! If there is any swell, there can be a big wave (whomp!) crashing right on shore and the dropoff into deep water is quick. Lots of surfers but only in one area (no beginners!!!). If you want to work on your tan at a quiet beach, this is the spot!
