This is a well maintained beach with very nice facilities. It was a bit crowded when we went there and had a surprising number of surfers.

I was skeptical about paying $15 to park and $10/adult to get in... But it was worth it. Beautiful, clean beach with surprisingly warm water. The concession stand even has cold brew!

I have never seen such a beautiful sunset in my life! This was jaw droppingly beautiful last night. We came for the first time, and although there were a good amount of people there, and some parked with their lights on shining in everyone’s faces...More
