I really enjoy Sunset Beach. Location is close to me, plenty of free parking, and it is very clean. Take a bag lunch or dinner and watch the sunset! Always a good, relaxing thing to do!

An important thing to note is this is a man-made beach so it's not what you think of when you think beach on the ocean. It's a very family friendly spot and good for small group outings. One major drawback is all of the seagulls...More

The beach was much smaller than expected but my 3 year old daughter enjoyed walking in the water and looking at all the different rocks. Very close to outdoor shower and bathroom area. Also there is a very nice playground close by.

Yes, it's a beautiful smaller beach that usually doesn't get used a lot. The parking is free and very close to the sand.
