Took my horse riding on the beach. Was awesome! Nice and flat highly recommend. Only thing I'd suggest is better adequate fencing between golf club and beach.

Sometimes you wonder. When I crossed the dunes and first laid eye on this beach I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I have read reviews of beaches that would compare as a landfill to this beach and got five stars. What on...More
