This park was by the condo we rented. It is a free beach with lots of free parking, as well as benches to sit and watch the sunset. It is a great place to relax or take pictures of the sunset.

We went twice, once in the morning before anyone was there. It was so nice and peaceful. Ideal for a picnic. Then we went back one evening for sunset pictures. It was great!
