Quiet, clean beach in April. Nice walk on beach with hubby. Kind of rainy so not many people out. Not sure how crowded it would be during summer season.

Clean and not too far to walk to from the hotel we stayed at. I heard there are bonfires on the beach in the summertime. I cannot wait to go back.
