Take your bike and enjoy the beach. I have done it and stop at all the beaches even if I don't go in the water. It is always fun to cruise on a bike along the water.

The beach was what you would expect, crystal clear water, slightly rocky shallows and palm trees that offer shade. Sounds like a great beach, the only drawback was that there were A LOT of homeless people there. While we talked to one who happened to...More
