This is a great family beach. There is an admission charge but Seniors can buy a lifetime pass. Not a lot of surf action except on occasions when there is an offshore storm. Water temperature mostly comfortable but a bit warm in Aug/Sep.

This is a lovely beach. Off season it is absolutely peaceful. This beach is a favorite of mine and my guests regardless what time of year. It does have an entrance fee which is well worth it!!
