Like my title says, the beach is ok. The hike there was the best part. Right near the end of the hike you come to this great overlook of the beach and i thought that was the best part. The rock waterslides along the way...More

Took a 1 day boat trip from downtown to explore the beach - definitely recommend. Good option to chill out or surf.
