Where to start? We are from out of state and found this beach seriously lacking. First there was a 15-20 min wait just to get into the park. When we paid the $15 out of state fee we really expected this to be a nice place.
There is plenty of parking and a lot of access to the beach areas. There is a little inlet that is better for smaller kids who wouldn't be able to deal with the strong waves and current on the ocean side. They also have a fairly large playground. They do have toilets and water to wash hands. But these are the end of my positive comments.
The beach was fairly crowded. The sand was incredibly hot. I'm not just being a pansy here. My husband burned his feet from walking without shoes on. The one good part about the hot sand is that you can warm up your feet when they are close to hypothermic from the freezing cold water. All of this could have been ignored as just circumstance if it wasn't for the lack of facilities.
I was not impressed with the bathrooms as far as cleanliness. At least they did have soap to wash hands. And it wasn't smelly. There is absolutely nowhere to rinse your feet after coming out of the sand and no shower facilities. Maybe I'm just spoiled because we come from a place where these things are standard.
Overall, if you're desperate for some beach time, this place will suffice. Otherwise, save up and head somewhere else.
