I've been going to this beach for over 40 yrs. Used to be able to park your car between the palm trees, but there is paved parking with bathroom facilities now. No Life Guard, so beware for those of you who would want a lifeguard...More

A great beach with lots of room, no crowding ever. Quiet, tranquil. Easy to get to and parking is rarely a problem. A good place to look for seashells, too.

When I was there it was cash only. There are usually plenty, but I recommend arriving early if you want a specific location.
