It was nice watching the surf guys. The sea is beautiful and it was not very crowded and it can be during the surf competitions.

The sand is soft and it wasn't too crowded on a Tuesday afternoon. Not a ton of shade however. While most of the beaches have decent sunset views, this one is really good.

Beautiful Spot to stop and take pictures or enjoy the view. We were not there during surf season- and are not surfers- but we enjoyed the scenic drive and the amazing weather

Parking is at a premium so snag a spot wherever you can. Admission was free the day we were there but perhaps it depends on the event.
