This is a very popular beach area, especially in the summer, and therefore the parking can become very crazy. The beach itself is fantastic, but getting down to it can be hazardous. People are crossing the street constantly, as cars are trying to get into...More

This a beautiful gem of a beach park with a playground just up a small rise from the beach surrounded by grass. The beach has very easy access from the parking area and a short walk to stores and Starbucks. There are several expensive restaurants...More

We went at night. The restaurant that adjoins it has huge flood lights that light up the waves, what a romantic night stroll, Open 24/7. Parking is pricy and hard to find. Otherwise a very upscale beach.
