  • It's all here small town community, art, food, entertainment beautiful people. It is a awesome place to escape the daily grind of life. Surrounded by trails the ocean and spectacular views. I very happy place which is hard to leave at the end of the day. Lots of wonderful memories and pics.
  • Probably had the most fun I've had on any California Beach recently. The water was warm by West coast standards. Lively diverse crowd of folks getting tossed around by waves and generally enjoying themselves. Lifeguards were alert and ready to keep everyone safe. Check it out, you'll have a good time.
