You really need a 4WD and beach permit to get there, but you drive right up to the ocean and open you tailgate. The surf is usually good and it has become quite popular in more recent years. No small wonder because the entire beach...More

We went to the 4wd section and loved this beach. Few rocks, fun surf, 70 degrees F, soft sand. It is busy on the weekends and close to the airport so jets do fly somewhat frequently over your head on a Sunday but it wasn't...More
