We absolutely love beaches and this one has good hard packed sand, steady breeze, and natural dunes. This also offers a drive in beach experience reminiscent of simpler times.

Loved the family-friendly environment. The bech was quite and seemed to be enjoyed by all. I loved the fact you could drive your car on the beach in many places. Some families had fires on the beach in the evening. Just beautiful to see.
