Great beach, clean, patrolled, volleyball courts, restrooms, parking, nice sand. Great for walking on the 'strand' (by the houses) or riding (closer to the sand dedicated pedal/skate path).

Clean and fun familial beach! Bars around and eateries make it accessible. Lots of tourist and locals. Pier has a free tiny aquarium. We enjoyed the beach, there were lifeguards around. Recommend it! It’s not as crowded as other nearby beaches.

nothing really compares to a long walk along the ocean on the Strand. Revives the soul. Take a friend with and make it twice as good

We really enjoyed this beach. It was extremely clean beach. It was fun watching all the surfers and bodyboarders. It feels like you can walk for miles and not even be bothered by anyone.

It was so beautiful! From the tall, thin California classic palms entrance to the pier it was a very pleasant visit. The shops. The creamery. The walk. The locals. The surfing. The big band of sand. The shore homes all very different from each other....More

It might be possible. There was a bike rental they might have rental chairs. . If you are at a hotel near by they might have chairs for the beach . Enjoy!
