  • Best beach I think I’ve ever been to. We will 100% be coming back, the drive itself is gorgeous. The lifeguards were so friendly and kind. Beware, you have to walk down some sand littered with rocks to access- so if you have a disability with vision or mobility..May not be the best beach for you, there are few beaches on the drive before this one with better access.
  • Perfect local beach. Lots of big waves to body board or watch others. Not a great swimming spot in the winter with the big waves.
