  • I've been coming here for about 9 years now. The only drawback is that the waves can get quite big. But there are so many fun things to do. For example, the bay is always very close. It doesn't get very deep either. The deepest point is maybe 3 or 4 feet so the average person could walk across with no issues. The sand at south beach is great for sand structures and holding umbrellas in. S Uzbek suejdusuehfysbd. The ocean is great as well. I highly recommend this beach to anybody nearby.
  • Great beach. Large waves. Just watch out for the coldest water on the island and the $60.00 fee to park on the beach.
