Nice beach. Went on a crowded Sunday. Clean but lots of kids jumping off the dock. If you are looking for relaxation try another beach.

My two teenagers had a ton of fun jumping off the walls and bridge. They enjoyed being pushed out past the wall to the ocean. It was very shallow and easy to get back to shore. My only caution is that there are barnacles along...More

No, I do not believe so. There is an area to change, a cafe and washrooms on site.
