Beautiful beach in winter. No crowds, lots of parking. I've never been here in the summet but from January to April it is wonderful. The only drawback is the cars on the beach.

Clean, beautiful beach. Soft sand and easy access to the beach and ocean. Shells were in abundance and would be great for families.
