We visited the north end and the middle beach areas both. The north beach area has more parking and is less crowded. Both areas had restrooms close and free parking. You can drive & park on the beach ($5 park pass required) from the middle beach area. We flew here so we rented umbrella and chairs from Beach Rentals and More for $21 per day. No multiple day discounts but you didn't have to return them until 5pm on the last day of your rental. Plenty of lifeguards and family friendly. There could be a few more trash cans available but that is a small inconvenience .
