great for the young and the mature. Surprisingly relaxing quiet beach with beautiful views, Easy access, easy parking.
Small beach in the boondocks with nothing around, kind of creepy if you are there by yourself. I suppose if you are with a group it would be ok, I only stayed 5 minutes, there was one man in the water with a metal detector and myself, so I got back in the car and left
