My son and I enjoyed strolling on the beach from our hotel to downtown and back. Clean, easily walkable beach without litter or sharp objects.

Busy beach with some action. Great people watching but it is crowded. So if you want to come for family picnic great spot.

Not like the huge beaches further up the coast, but also not as many people. Neat little town to visit as well.

September is often the warmest month of the year. It will be amazing. Make sure your resort has air conditioning as a few of the older ones do not. If you are ocean front you wont need it with the breeze.
