  • Very nice beach should get there early for a good space on the beach. How ever one female lifeguard was so beyond rude to myself and others. The bathroom are not clean was so ever i would avoid using them.
  • Pleasant beach, quite crowded for a Thursday afternoon. Clean, plenty of bathrooms, changing rooms and showers. Parts of the beach were a little smelly, maybe from the abundance of dead seaweed, I’m not sure. Not a bad choice, but in the future I’m going to check out some other beaches in the area :)
