Although it sometimes may be packed with people, it is very clean with minimal amount of homeless there. Free showers and restrooms. Enjoy your stay there.

Very likely one of the best public beaches I have been to. Very orderly, with free showers, restrooms, free volleyball courts, and very nice views. The large parking lot and easy road access is a mixed blessing.
