“peaceful and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

It was a beautiful sunny day. The water was cold but the beach was warm. Had a great time relaxing and catching some sun. I hope to go back some time soon.

“Beautiful and clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Parking for the public was great. Rest rooms very nice. The sand is as white as sugar. This is a great place for families. There were life guards working, which made us feel very safe.

Nice beach, not a lot of people when we went. But we did go early in the morning. The water was so clear.

“Excellent beach access”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Although we were prepared for a gorgeous beach, it was very impressive that the waves were manageable and you could walk out forever in the surf. Definitely family friendly and not scary for kids. The water is so clear and was very warm when we visited. The sand is beautiful white, and does not seem to hold heat so you can walk on it without discomfort. Equally nice is the fact that there is parking available on the road (free), and no charge for the beach either. Up north there is often a fee for a beach tag or for parking - so this was so nice to enjoy without spending a fortune. They also provide trash receptacles, which is a service diminishing in the northern beaches. Very impressed and would definitely return again!!!
