Based on reviews, we went here on a Sunday after lunch to fill a couple hours while waiting to pick up someone at the airport. It was a wind day, so the swimming was not even really possible. There was a LOT of seaweed on the beach and in the water. Planes went overhead regularily. I found them distracting, but my husband liked looking at them. Not very relaxing. It is a long stretch, so there was room for all. The sand is VERY HOT, so flip flops are helpful. Some pretty shells, but not a lot. Showers and bathrooms were available and in typical shape for a public place. The "educational facility" was just an area for groups to hear talks. We did find the "Nature Walk". It was kind of interesting to see native trees/plants labeled. There were lots of cobwebs, so not many people must check it out. It only took us 10 minutes to walk it as it looked like part of it was blocked off. We left about 3pm and the line of cars to get in was LOOONG!
