“Nice View Of the Gulf Of Mexico...”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

However the beach falls short with it's small frontage and dirty looking sand...And, there is NO First Aid if you need it!

“Great Swimming, Clean, Easy Access”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

The lifeguards are menschs. Very helpful and easy to talk to. One came over and gave some unsolicited first aid to a friends who had fallen in the surf and got abrasions.
Really fun to swim out to the sand bar and hang out there.

“Went shelling”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

We got there at low tide and were disappointed by lack of shells available. Not what we expected. My wife and relative had gone there a month previously and got several good shells. May have been an off day, but offerings did not meet my expectations.

“Clean and lots of available parking!!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

This beach was extremely clean. The bathroom facilities are very nice. There is a snack bar and plenty of shady spots. The parking is free and there is a lot of it. We will definitely be returning back to this beach!!
