Avoid the stinking bathroom full of junkies at all costs. Also the filthy outdoor shower. Walk down the beach to the military beach 200yd. Or stay in front of the lifeguard stands. Locals get violent if you sit or swim in front of the canoes....More

A lovely, local beach that is protected from large waves. Great place to bring small children. Also take a stand up paddle board lesson with George, a wonderful local man.
