What a massive beach! This beach could hold a hundred thousand sunbathers and not be crowded! Water rather cool.

Beautiful location. Swimming in the ocean water and enjoying sunbathing with plenty of room to bring along the entire family!

We visited on a cold day but we still appreciated the beauty of the physical setting. It would help if someone cleaned the graffiti though.

Nice beach. Clean. It is a long walk out to the water but it is the biggest beach. Take some time there.
