  • Lovely beach, it is quite crowded and I would definitely avoid during high peak holiday periods. Kids loved it though.

  • Beautiful beach to visit. Water is clean, clear and blue. We were able to see several dolphins swimming by. The lifeguards were very attentive and kind. The bathrooms were clean and there was soap in the soap dispensers lol. Parking was hard to find. We did park next to a parking meter. We were able to download the app and pay through the app when our time limit was up.
  • Parking kinda sucks since it's a residential area by beach and people will fill up the streets quick. Ended up parking on Coast Highway street parking with the parking meter. $2.75 for one hour. One hour limit, but you can probably just use a different card to pay. Anyway, the walk down wasn't far and the beach wasn't crowded. I snorkeled near the sides by the rocks and saw a calico bass near a grassy rock. Probably guarding its nest. There are some tide pools as well within walking distance on both sides of the beach.
