You need to pay to get into this beach but it is worth it. The beach is clean and the parking is free. We were close enough to walk from our hotel. It is great for kids, there is a small climbing slide and swings.

Easy to walk to, lots of parking, multiple kayaks and other water sports. Good beach area. Has walking paths to allow you access from a couple of blocks down the road so you don't have to park in the parking area.
