The Atlantic Ocean is beautiful and there were huge waves. We even saw a couple of dolphins in the distance while we were at the water's edge. It was 100 degrees and full sun when we went and we so wished there would have been some areas to take relief from the sun and some seating. The beach and water are sparkling clean. There were a lot of people but it's a lot less crowded than Rehoboth Beach! Be prepared to get bitten by black flies in the restroom facilities but once you're out by the water, that problem is solved.
