Beach area friendly for little swimmers. My daughter was able to sit in the water and walk in the water with me present and she is a toddler. There are public washrooms nearby. Sand and grass areas.

Clean and not too crowded. Snorkeling is wonderful close to shore. It is not uncommon to see sea lions or sea turtles on the beach.
