Very nice beach! Kid/family friendly. There is a park area right next to the beach that has plenty of shady areas for picnics and such. Plenty of parking.

Wonderful beach,. Fun for the entire family. A must for visitors. We live on the island, close to the ocean and still go there.

Not much parking for this beach, which makes it not crowded. Sand is beautiful and white. There is a place to eat and get drinks near by.
