Soft white sand, warm shallow water, shells and sand dollars galore. This beach has beautiful sunsets, pleanty of great swimming, snorkeling, and parasailing adventures, and the softest white sand your feet will ever touch.

This was an awesome beach with white powdery sands. This is a place I could definitely spend a lot of time relaxing. Bathroom and showers were clean, parking was easily found.
