There are positives & negatives to this beach. Positives for some may be huge negatives for you. Depends on what you are looking for.
There is a $7 state beach parking fee. Most of the state beaches start to charge after Memorial Day. This one has not started yet as of early June. Some park on the street and walk in, but it is a pretty significant walk to get from the road to the beach.
There are bathroom facilities near the main beach area. There is a smaller secondary road to the left that takes you to a 2nd beach area.
The water is fairly shallow with lots of sandbars. The kids can go way out & still only be up to their knees. However, there are dropoff points where it is deep.
The upper part of the beach is nice sand, but closer to the water and in the water is very rocky. There are also TONS of snails. I thought it smelled a little swampy the day I was there too. The view is spectacular and there is room to spread out.
Along the road into the park there are grills where you can cook lunch (charcoal only). Hiking trails as well. There were several people fishing out in the middle of the water, away from the beach, although they said they only had one fish between them all morning.
In early summer the turns & plover are nesting so there is no kite flying and some roped off areas because the plover at least, are endangered.
I enjoyed the beach, but would not go there on a day that I wanted to swim, as there just wasn't a spot deep enough for me to even get waist deep without walking VERY far & if I sat, I would be sitting on a ton of snails.
If you are looking for great views, uncrowded, shallow water where the kids can splash & dig with TONS of water area for playing in, this is a wonderful choice off of the beaten path.
