This beach has a fee during the season. We walked in and found room on the north end of the beach. Rest rooms and food available. Nice sunset.

Beautiful clean beach. Does get crowded on the weekends so get there early as the parking lot isn't all that big.

It is not crowded during off season and parking is free. Otherwise it is a mad house with so high fees for parking that I just don't come here becasue of it.

Gorgeous beach. Only complaint is that they charge $12 to park! Can't do that when I am only going there for my lunch.
