Clean, beautiful soft sand, and the waves weren’t rough, but we all know that can change. People of all ages were laying out, taking walks, building castles, etc.. Everyone is so polite, and seemed to be respectful of the beaches. Very easy access!!

A very quiet beach with lots of room for everyone. There is also a snack bar that serves ice cold drinks and lunch items.
