  • 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!
