  • Top notch beach with stunning views, tide pools and strong waves. Be careful with younger children as the sea floor drops quickly at the water's edge causing strong currents and waves that will knock down even an adult. My kids loved the strong waves and getting tossed around though! Just had to keep a closer eye on them. There are no restrooms here which also keeps the population down during the nicer summer days. Either way if you're looking for a gorgeous sunset, fun waves, clear water, surfing or a less populated beach, check out Windansea.
  • It’s a very beautiful beach, but there are a LOT of sand crabs (which means it’s very healthy but whatever). If you don’t like the concept of having hundreds of small crabs under your feet... it’s not the best. But, what it lacks in sand crabs, it makes up for in beauty, tide pools, and size. Very fun.
