“Gorgeous view, good snorkeling, wild water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We went here to snorkel. The surf was a bit big but still got to see some stingrays and other fish. I didn't like the undertow and riptide action, and the shorebreaker waves are not very good for body boarding, but the kids had a good time fighting the surf. Very picturesque, nice beach, well kept. Yes, fairly crowded because it is not a very big space.

“Busy Beach, Wild Waters, Tons of Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Even during the week this beach was seriously crowded, but I can tell why. The surf is big and strong here and can be a little scary. The breaks can get at least 10 ft. and they're on the shore, so you can tossed around quite a bit. If you don't mind the crowds and are looking for fun in the surf, it's a great place! Keep a close eye on the kids.

“found a starfish swam with a seal and sea lion what more could u want”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Fantastic, beach was beautiful, tide pools full of sea life and the visiting sea lion and seal made our trip. The pelicans dive bombing the sea lion just added to the fun.

“The epitome of summer by the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

It's my favourite kind of beach: gentle waves, some cliffs, clean soft sand. A great compact little beach. our family visited last Sunday with a little toddler and though it's the middle of summer, it wasn't terribly crowded. Parking can be challenging though. Great crowd there, mix of families and college kids, everyone's friendly.
decent restrooms.
