Barely waves - great for small children. Sand bars are out really far and can walk to it during the day. Water is so calm it feels like your at a lake. Playground at beach closer to parking a lot away from the beach.

We went Kayaking, had lunch at a super restaurant and then spent time on the beach. Need to be prepared for all of the shells in the sand; one big toe with a cut, but the restaurant gave us a bandage for it.

we rented bikes at the port pier and cycled to this beach which took about 5 minutes. There is a restaurant there that serves food and a place to store the bikes. The water is clear and the beach pristine. Lifeguards are on duty.
