the sea grass has totaly turned this beach into a eco disaster do not waste your time here and be very careful if you do come here the beach is a disaster and probably should be shut down until cleaned up

The beach is full of seaweed and smells rotten. You have to treck through 5-10 feet of complete seaweed to get into clear-ish water.The sand fleas are unbelievable. The tide doesn't seem to go down.. We've only been here a day and we are already researching other places to go. Pick somewhere else to spend your day or stay.

We didn't stay long... one person said its more a dog beach. We could smell a pretty bad rotten smell once we got out of our cars. The beach was pretty much all seaweed.. kids wanted nothing to do with it so we went to Sombrero beach which is no comparison to this beach.

Very small. Time of year there was so much seaweed that you could not go on beach or in water. The dried seaweed smelled so bad we had to leave immediately.

We stopped by here on an adventure day, there is a sign on Coco Plum Drive that directs you straight to the parking area, which is paved. There is one covered picnic area off the parking lot, an outhouse type bathroom (according to my friend-I didn't go in) and then the water. There was very little beach as the tide was high, so if you wanted to walk the beach, you definately got wet. It was unimproved-not raked, but is a natural beach, not like the groomed tourist attraction beaches. It has sea grass and is home to native turtles, so has their nesting sites cordoned off. It is also DOG friendly-so was a great place to let my little guy run around. We went on a Monday afternoon for about 30 minutes. Few people, no shade, and water full of weeds. Kind of like beaches at Bahai Honda for weeds, but much less sand. I would go again at low tide and bring a chair, just to let my dog run around. If you go to the State Parks, dogs aren't allowed on the beach or in the water.
