Great place to take solace, beautiful view, good eats, plenty of parking. Warning make sure you use the cross lights. There is a potential to get hit if you don't. Cars speed down the blvd.

This is it a swimming beach. Water was dirty (red flag on) and sand was super coarse. Would not recommend at all.

Great beach in any weather, with plenty of parking. Several restaurants, we prefer the Clam Box but they are closed in winter.
