  • This place made such good memories for me and my boy! Water was a little cold but not horrible! Even saw a couple of horseshoe crabs with my goggles! Pay for the all day parking and your day is set...  more »
  • I have loved this beach and its surroundings. It's not crowded, and it has good waves. There are beautiful and unique houses too. We went in August so there was a lot of algae. The water temperature was amazing though. The distance to get to the beach itself is perfect (not as in Santa Monica or other LA beaches where you'll walk a lot on the sand before touching the water)
  • Great beach. No hard boards (surfing). Large paid parking lot - or street parking with a downhill trek. Jetty and bluffs to climb around on. Designated swim zone beyond the wave break. Friendly and fantastic life guards. Snack shack and showers. Limited fire pits. And on a nice summer day, it's totally packed.
