Very nice beach! Kid/family friendly. There is a park area right next to the beach that has plenty of shady areas for picnics and such. Plenty of parking.

Watched the sun rise over the Atlantic from this beach. It was beautiful. Found some shells, saw fisherman casting, runners and walkers and families enjoying this wide beach. The beach is wide and the homes and businesses have dunes and sawgrass, so you have dunes...More
