The beach across from the Embassy Suites has a light crowd and fun waves. It was a little rocky in the water, but the sand was perfect.

My wife and I spent a Friday afternoon on this beach. The section of the beach we were on wasn’t overly busy because it was before 4pm on Friday, but there weren't any lifeguards in the area so that might have caused fewer people to hang out there. I saw a lot more people farther north on the beach. The sand was nice and clean where we were at.

Parking at the time we were there wasn't a problem. We seemed to have found a smaller parking lot towards the end of the beach rather than a more central one. Parking was free, but the downside is that because we were on the end of the beach, it was a long walk to the bathroom towards the middle of the beach.

There were decent size waves but without lifeguards in that area, I wouldn't be inclined to let kids get too far into the surf.

Took our wheelchair-bound nephew to this park and it was perfect. We were able to push him right out on the sand. Had to carry him a bit closer so we could be close to the water to watch the little ones play, but we loved it. Clean, nice people there. Nearby bathrooms. GREAT!

big play area for kids. not as many tourists than up north or down south. when u walk to beach, showers and restrooms. u do have to pay to park. i wouldnt go back on holidays, due to parking extremely limited and many tickets and tows possible. outside of that, my kids really like coming here

Beach was very clean and convenient. Couldn't swim as weather was too cold, but we waded and the water was clean. Want to go back when warmer.
