Went there for a walk. Mostly private beach clubs but there is at least one where you can rent a chair/bed with cover. Swimming seems to be a afterthought as it was blacked flag due to undertow.

A great place to go at dawn. A hub of activity, with pescadores, walkers, joggers, and exercisers. My wife and I also went later in the day, and it was much nicer earlier on.
