Free parking, a scenic boardwalk to the sand, showers, bathroom and lifeguards. Very close to restaurants. Lots of families and couples, not too crowded, great beach vibe.

Great beach, umbrella/chair rental available at very reasonable rates, restrooms, outside showers, plenty of parking. Very few times have we been there when there wasn't a wedding - fun to watch.

Had to get out of our motel room, but weren't ready to go home. Decided we should find a public beach, and when we did we were thrilled. A bit of a walk from the parking lot, (we realized later, we could have parked closer)...More

Response from Sandra W | Reviewed this property |
Sorry about the late reply. Did not have to use them.
How's the water at this beach? How deep is the water? How wavy, typically? And most importantly, is it warm enough to go into March 17-25!
