  • - Vast expanse of white sands - Clean - Life guard on duty - fantastic beach for beginner surfers - waves are very close to the shore. So very easy to begin surfing w/o going deep into the ocean...  more »
  • The boardwalk and the beach and view as are to die for! We walked all the way up and down to the park. Took about an hour, great!  more »
  • The sand terrain is not very nice but it is still a calm and peaceful beach!
  • Good sunset view and was empty in covid time. Good for playing volleyball and to go in water.
