Very busy on a Saturday near the water! We had a lot of fun though. The sand is soft and the water was refreshing. We enjoyed seeing some dunes but didn’t hike any. Was fun to see the boats and jet skis fly by far out in the water, too!
The beach was really nice. I didn’t think it was too cowered. They have changing rooms and bathrooms. Two different parking lots for the beach. I went with my family and had no cell reception so we lost them for a while. But the beach wasn’t that big that we eventually found everyone. The only con was that we got there later in the afternoon so the wait to get into the park was over an hour. Just be prepared to wait in the car for a while.
