The beach is great. The sand is nice and fluffy. The life guards were very active and attentive. The water was nice and clear. My kids and I stayed in the water all day.

The beach is clean & the water is fun. Clean restrooms are available. The Boardwalk provides plentiful food & drink options to enjoy while hanging out in the sun & surf. Great place for a vacation.

It's a breeze! The hotels are not crowded, so the rates are very special, the service is impeccable because their workload is way down. Basically, the service is better all around. I go to OC almost every Thanksgiving... More

There are levels walking into the water but there is a lower area (similar to a tide pool, very calm) for kids to play in. Great sand for building castles too.
