This park is great because it has beautifully soft grass and sand and beach access. My family had a great time lounging in the grass, playing football and walking on the beach. We enjoyed watching the surfers ride the waves.

We went at night. The restaurant that adjoins it has huge flood lights that light up the waves, what a romantic night stroll, Open 24/7. Parking is pricy and hard to find. Otherwise a very upscale beach.

This beach has everything - a beautiful sandy beach, surfing, lifeguard, bathroom, grass area, benches to watch the sunset, and a playground. The biggest difficulty is parking - if you can find it, it is expensive and don't even think of letting your meter run...More

Pack a lunch, walk through on your way to one of the several beachfront restaurants. Watch the surfers or the dolphins, catch a sunset - it's the perfect location.
