The sand is nice but not a lot of seating during high tide. Parking can be quite pricey depending on when you go. Always a family favorite.

Easy to get to and easy parking ($15). Was great for our kids to experience the beach. It was a clean beach with friendly people. We will go back the next time we are in the area!
