Sand dollars, lovely shells and quiet. The beach is clean; the restrooms are clean. Officials drive by often so it feels very safe.

My daughters and I enjoyed an afternoon here. For $5 and a short walk to the beach, this was perfect. I learned the hard way not to feed the seagulls...they turn into birds from a horror movie when you stop. Overall loved it!!!

Great beach, lots and lots of wide open space, not too many people during the week, and the water was pretty, too!
