Great beach day if you go early. The wind picks up in the afternoon. Get behind a dune or stay up near the trees to protect from afternoon winds. Very nice beach.

We came here early in the morning, so it was empty. It's a beautiful beach! The sand is clean and there is plenty of space. We appreciated seeing lots of workers picking up trash before most of the visitors arrived. Recommended!
