Beautiful beach and nature. We saw seals swimming close to shore and lovely trails. Restrooms and changing rooms were clean.

Great beach to go to. The parking lot is only 100 feet from the beach. Good to take young kids to because of the short walk from where you park. 2 food truck on property. The tacos were fresh and delicious
Great waves, not very crowded in the off season and parking was easy. Nice, clean beach and there are occasionally seals visible along the waves!
