“this is a great place to hang out”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Beautiful beaches, just a great place to go and hang out, here for a short visit from up north but would be a great place to camp. Only complaint was huge amount of trash, we picked up a bagful of beercans, plastic bottles etc. in just a few minutes, then a truck came by with TX plates and threw fast food wrappers out the window,
