Stayed just a short while to take in sun and waves. Small beach with minimal parking. Get there early during vacation season.

A great place to sit in the sand, soak up some sun and look at a beautiful ocean. A good place for whale watching when in season. We love coming here.

We ended up here a few times because it was so fun. You could walk along the beach, have lunch, go the outdoor mall. Just was a great way to spend a few hours. Sunsets here are amazing.

I have seen online other places that do go out later - into the afternoon. Everyone says' that the morning ones are the best due to the tradewinds in the afternoon.
