I don't go to the beach nearly enough, which is a shame because it is beautiful. It's the classic beach experience. It's not too crowded, it's pretty clean, the sand is white, the beach is wide, there are new bathroom & shower facilities, you can rent a lounger all day for $12.00 or so. You can spend a dollar to go out & fish on the pier or just enjoy the view. It's such a pretty beach, I don't know why it doesn't get much ink, but that's good. It's less crowded for us locals. Sunrise on the beach is worth the effort. We are truly blessed by having it so near.
