A beautiful beach conveniently located to many hotels, with lovely views. There a multiple free parking lots available along the beach if driving. We saw a turtle while wading in the water. There are also boats, kayaks, surfboards available for rental.

Beautiful stretch of beach with soft golden sand. Black Rock beach is within walking distance. Great waves to body surf.

We stayed at the Westin resort so the beach is just steps away. Soft sand which is always nice and the water is clear and the temperature was perfect. The sand quickly give way to rock and coral as you snorkel away from the beach....More

Great for chilling by the ocean. Can parasail from there and other adventures. Great shopping near by. Too long of a line for a coffee

Wonderful place! Wish I could live there some day. The long (about an hour walk) beach walk is what we loved the most! Good restaurants, good hotels, good people! We will be back!

The beach was relatively crowded and surf surge was high. Snorkeling around Black Rock was okay. Very congested but the highlight was a turtle making an appearance. All in all it was a good day, with snacks and libations available at local restaurants. Parking can...More

There pavilions with restrooms at the beach park by the Westin villas resort. There is a board walk that runs for a couple of miles along the beach. Pick a spot And go swim. Have a great time

Definitely road construction so expect delays. The far north end of beach under beach refurbishment as well. Just take your time and expect delays.
