“Great Surf here”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Not the best sand on a beach in the world, but very family friendly.
Loved watching people on Horses riding down the beach.

“Perfect”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

No facilities. No paved roads. Just miles of soft sandy beach surrounded by breathtaking scenery, warm water and waves. What more could you want? Quintessential beach experience.

“11-2 the place is yours”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

During the heat of February, who knew the sun would be so hot that the beach is practically empty during these hours. If you remember your sunscreen and find a little shade, the breeze will keep you cool. But sunset is where its at! Surfers, dogs, yogis and regular beach goers turn out every night for God's show.

“Easy, fun snorkeling!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

When the tide is low in the morning there is some awesome and easy snorkeling! Had a blast here! Not a resort, a real life sand, rocks, water only beach.

“Beautiful and great surf”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Loved the beach at sunset, warm and inviting. Snorkeling in the morning was awesome and saw a lot of fish in very shallow pools. Easy for all. Would avoid in afternoon due to heat. This is a natural string, if you want food, restrooms, etc go to a resort.
