These really are the most beautiful beaches in the world. I still avoid it during spring break due to all of the misbehavior, although the new laws cut down on that. Water is warm and white sand beaches are inviting. Make sure you are parked...More

Soft white sandy beaches. Very family friendly. Went during a tropical storm, but still beautiful. Families seemed to be enjoying it.

The beach was odd in that there was a drop off to the water - not sure why it is that way. The sand was nice and clean.

We stayed at the Wyndham Resort and had an amazing time! Beautiful and very clean beach! The only downside was the expensive beach chair/umbrella rental at the beach.

Adventures at sea, but make sure you get a hold of them early they close at 4.
I see some photos of the beach looking very rough and then some looking like a calm pool. Any advice when or where I should go to experience the calm waters? Please and thank you.
