We decided that another visit was in store in the summer, as we were very impressed with the beach. Great for long walks in the sunset.

Clean beach, good for all ages. Snack bar is always busy. Washroom could use a little help, but that comes down to how people treat it.

Same answer as others. No BBQ Allowed on beach. Tents and umbrellas OK. Yet nothing can be on beach that hampers the view of the lifeguards.
