This beach and area are very clean and more family oriented. The beach is a sharper slope than some other nearby beaches, so watch the little ones going in. The undertow at shore from breaking waves could be a danger to the real little ones who can't swim. I remember being terrified when my parents would bring us here when I was a kid. For adults it's fine. Most people hang out in the water beyond the wave breaks, which is only a few feet in. The waves seem to roll in the same spot. Lot of boats offshore to see riding by. The sand is very soft and free of rocks, broken shells, seaweed. Parking in the lots run $10-$20 for the day, depending on when you get there. Most free parking are for the residents. There are port-a-poties. If you want a real bathroom, stop at the visitor's center before you go over the bridge on the way in. The surrounding neighborhood is nice and safe for all. Plenty of walking distance little restaurants.
