There is a small river just next to the beach. The water temperature is warm. Good for family. It´s a great beach however, mosquitoes make the experience less pleasant.

This beach can be hard to get to if it's raining and the road is too muddy, but it's worth the drive through the park to see it. It's peaceful and quiet.
