This beach is a resort beach. Very popular. It is approximately 1/4 of a mile and has nice soft sand with minimal shade on the beach. On the beach there are chairs to rent and the restrooms are located in the middle of the beach.
It is a clean, family beach with lifeguards on duty and plenty of room. The beach entering the water has a nice slow gradation which makes it perfect for little ones and adults alike.
The waves are nice and smooth which makes for a great morning beach. In the summer months, the swell can come up and bring 1-3 foot waves in the afternoon. Be careful in the fall months as larger waves have been known to suddenly appear with the afternoon swell.
No fires are allowed; use a small grill or hibachi in the park areas and keep them off the beach. Hot coals hidden in the sand can smolder for hours and creating a real danger to barefoot beachgoers the next day.
