Beautiful beach as always. Very crowded on this particular day probably because it was super hot! But it’s always clean, and the water is crystal clear. It’s worth the parking rate for a day at the beach. Parking fills up very quickly. Get in early....More

This is a great beach for families with young children as it is very shallow at low tide going pretty far out. Concessions and restrooms are average. The biting flies are horrendous. They are incredibly aggressive and left bloody wounds all over my legs and...More
