“Breathtaking Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Amazing beach that goes on for miles. Good surf and fairly quiet. Need a car or atv to get there but definitely worth a visit.

“Great Beach, Safe Surf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

My family with 3 kids loved this beach as it wasn't as rough as Santa Teresa and was really safe for surfing and swimming. We came here at sunset two times, so beautiful.
