  • Very beautiful corner park. It has beautiful views. Also has tables and benches and lots of parking space. This park is very clean and it has a beautiful sandy beach. You will not be disappointed visiting this park. It's perfect for picnic dates or even family/friends get together. Also the drive and scenery to this park is amazing. Don't forget that there is also a nearby ice cream place so grab some and drive to park to enjoy the views and catch some sun...
  • Perfect place to view the sea! Relaxing area. I’ve rented out the pavilion before and it was the best party ever! Had a great time! Definitely worth a visit.
