Long area for relaxing, swim and belly boarding. Pay parking if required and bathroom facilities. Liked the feel of being away from it all!

For the most part it is a nice quiet relaxing spot, great for walking or just unwinding. Holiday weekends you might choose another spot. Aside from those holiday weekends parking is adequate.
A nice spot to watch the sunset and listen to the waves.

The beach was busy but it was the Labor Day weekend. Parking was good if you arrived early. I loved the walking /jogging trails along the beach that went on for miles.

I stayed across from this beach near the pier and could watch the goings on every day. The beach was clean and well maintained, with a lifeguard station right there. There are restaurants and a snack bar there, as well as shops across the street. It was so much fun to watch the surfers, and just interaction among the people there. The Amtrak train has a stop right at the beach where you can purchase tickets for the Amtrak as well as MetroLink. Shops across the street rent surfboards and boggie boards as well. Great place to visit!
