Great little beach. Nice chairs on beach, staff was friendly. Lots of activities near by to do. Sales were a little overwhelming when you first get there. Will for sure go again.

This is a place for people with small kids, if you enjoy attractions based on inflated plastics stuff. Jet skis, around, etc. Not a good place if you come here to relax. This being said, it has restaurants, attractions, bar, and even a pharmacy.
