I had read other reviews that mentioned the walk to the beach. After you park your car, you can walk right down to the lagoon where the water is pretty murky. To be on the actual beach, you need to walk about 10 minutes or so around to your left. Not a bad walk, but if you are carrying your cooler, your beach chairs and your other beach necessities, your arms will get tired. One of those beach carts would definitely be helpful here. Otherwise, the beach was very nice, not too crowded. Also, if you need to use the restroom, you will have to walk back to the parking lot where the public facilities are located so plan ahead.
