I have 3 small kids & was told this beach would be great because of the small waves that it has because of the reef that surrounds it...but because of the reef it also is very rocky, rocky even for me an adult.My little ones tried but just could not get away from the rocks big,sharp painful rocks.Yes they were wearing water shoes all the time but that did not save there knees & hands.If you want to go for a run or bike ride they have a nice path & lots of BBQ places the beach it self is nice to sit in the sand & sun bath is great.I think if you swim out far enough the rocks can not bother you but as for kids not good.
There also was alot of homeless in this part of town.

Great to relax and not have to think about my day job. Good clean food and drinks. Sandy beach but not a beach for surfing.

This is a great locals beach and the waters are calm. It is a great place to go during sundown but the parking can be tight.

This is the best beach for lap swimming. Lots of parking. Go early and enjoy a sandy beach with no rock obstacles. You may have to watch for paddle boarders :-) And keep an eye out for turtles on the east side.
