Hard sand great for wagons. Beach water is semi clear. Not many shells but tons of families having lots of fun in the water. Sand is cool even in 100 degree weather

Great beach for family and kids. Sand is powdery and soft. Kids can wade out pretty far because it is so shallow. If you want to relax and enjoy smooth water- this was fantastic! Not much shelling going on.
