We went here with our 2,5 and 7 year old grandsons. The beach is beautiful and the kids loved it and loved the atmosphere of the surrounding town. They had been to St Petersburg Beach, Florida in June. Said this was more fun!

Nice beach and lots of parking, and is ideal for family with young children. It is normally very calm, and the odd times you have some waves.
