Great vibe, and enjoyed looking at all the shops, interesting characters, body builders and skateboarders. Definitely worth a stroll when visiting the area. The beach homes are nice to look at too.

We visited the beach on a beautiful day, we had a great time watching the bodybuilders, skateboarders and various characters on the boardwalk. The beach was clean and t-shirts were pretty inexpensive. I don't think I would go there at night, but I enjoyed my walk through.

Terrible! No vibe, and there's a lot of rapper wannabes trying to spruk there homemade rap cd's to you. Not a surfy beach at all more vagrants asking you for money or a 4.20!

The beach is beautiful wide with golden sand and of course the Pacific ocean is magnificent.

However the boardwalk is another story. Its very rundown and there are lots of people begging for change and openly abusing drugs & alcohol.

We only spent 40minutes there as part of a sight seeing tour and that was more than enough for this life time.
