Wow, in mid=August no way would we go in the water here and we are strong swimmers even at our retired age. But it was great fun to watch the locals bogey board these rough and high waves!! Some shade which is nice!

Just joking, it may not be down there but the surf is perfect for surfers who love to cut the waves. A public beach next to a luxury resort. Locals like to take over the park at the end of the lot. The beach offers sandy and shady areas for family. But the surf is rough so not too friendly for the little ones.

The day we went the waves were taller then my 6ft husband. You could see them tower over people and swallow them. Nice to stand on the beach and watch the waves. Didn't do the walk to the cliff will have to go back and walk that without the smaller ones

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt right by this beach. We enjoyed walking over to watch the locals surf and boogie board. Pretty amazing. My 14 year old son and I also hiked up the approximately 40 ft. cliff. He jumped off and loved it. Mom walked back down. He said the swim back to the beach was exhausting but did it again the next day!

This beach has some very beautiful views and is very clean and well maintained. The surf is a bit rough for swimming but is an awesome place for surf boardings. Huge waves.
