No frills, perfect beach. What more do you want? Showers and changing cabanas exist by the parking lot.

It can get crowded around 10am until 2pm, but if you get there early you can get a great spot. Clean beach and great for dolphin viewing. The middle portion of the beach has lifeguard coverage.

The white, clean beaches with small wild pony herds visiting when you are fortunate - unforgettable,- especially the new foals
