Beautiful beach at sunset time . I prefer to try the different kind of seafoods instead of swimming at the beach . Don't forget to drink coconut juice. It is really fresh like pina colada cocktail. 🦀🦑🐙🍹🍸🌴🌊

Unlike reviews I read from the past, saying this beach was full of trash, it was pretty clean when I went (January 2017). Nothing worse than a beach in Los Angeles anyway. It also wasn't crowded at all. The road along the beach is very...More
