The water & beach was beautiful, and I appreciated the picnic tables under the trees. There's a snack bar (with good chips & salsa) & restrooms. Go early before the cruise ship passengers descend. Well worth the entry fee.

I was not expecting much for the beach, but this area was wonderful!! Lovely sand, enough shade, great photo opportunities, and the water was glorious the day we were there, warm and very clear!!! Lovely spot!

We bike to this beach 3-4 times a week during our month long stay. Nicest beach for swimming , snorkeling, and enjoying the ships coming in.

Was a good beach. Not a fan of my leaving my drivers license with "Pepe le Pew" who reeked of B.O. to rent my chair.
