When we went, the surf was high and it was really fun watching the surfers. Later, we came back and watched the sunset.

Even when there’s a full coat of white sand, the waves are stronger than most people are comfortable with. You can picnic on the beach under the trees, but little kids and less athletic folks should stay out of the water.

This is a great spot in town and always busy. The waves are guaranteed to be great for riding. The sand isn\t always there, which makes this spot unique. there are child friendly areas for children to play on the beach, however the ocean is often pretty strong.

Best of all this is an amazing spot to view the sunset!!

This beach was a bit of disappointment. It’s a very small beach. The sandy part is even less. On the good side it’s very flat and get good waves. So you can go much further into the water and do some basic surf board surfing. Fun place for kids but not much for people looking for good fun on beach. Worst not much place to lie on sand as well.
