This beach is gorgeous. Was fun exploring looking for shells and shark teeth. Seals come close to shore. Water is beautiful and the view is just stunning.

There is plenty of room to spread out on this beach with dunes and soft sand. There is also plenty of parking and great access from the parking. There are restrooms and food there too.

The views on the ocean from this beach are spectacular. Beware of only one thing; there is a parking charge and it isn't cheap! The season with paid parking goes through the end of September rather than just Labor Day.

Parking was a big challenge but we got lucky. If you have trouble with stairs this will be difficult for you. The facilities were very clean with cold showers available.

During July and August the parking lot is often filled by 10:00 or 10:30. It opens again later in the afternoon. Good Luck.
