While one can drive on the beach here, we prefer to walk. Stay out of the traffic lanes, however, because few attend to the "strict"speed limit. This is a great beach to walk because of the firmness of the sand. Very clean. Lots of families.

Drive onto the beach, set up your umbrella or tent to spend a memorable day. Best days are weekdays, far less crowded. The upper end of the beach close to the inlet is where you can watch the surfers.

Beautiful sandy beach just off the avenue! Super clean and beautiful sunsets! Walked the shops on the avenue and stepped right off onto the soft sandy beach! Hope to return soon!

Spent late afternoon enjoying a few rays and couple of beers. Lovely spot, nice to relax on and did not get crowded. Recommended if you like a beach as the sand is nice to wiggle your toes in and the sea is warm. We'll do it again, soon!

Woa!, car parking is limited in this part of town, therefore you can park your car at the beach. It is a nice beach, convenient, with clean water and some dunes. And it has great waves for surfers.

I was surprised at how clean this public beach was, especially with so many picnicking families. I wasn't necessarily a fan of all of the cars and beach traffic but the width of the beach and shallows was great. It was ok for a little football, time in the sun, walking, surfer watching. Loved the rocks/pier area. But, the pedestrian... More

The parking is at a premium, so you can drive and park on the sand, very convenient especially with kids and older folks.
