I was on a business trip and I was able to visit the beach. The sunset is amazing specially when seeing from one of the restaurant that offer out side seating.

We had fun in the water from young to old. We walked the sidewalk to see the sights. We went to the amusement park and shops and had a good time.

The beach was beautiful and walking was delightful especially when we were watching the sunset. I enjoy watching children playing in the sand and the runners enjoying an evening run.

This beach is not the best in the area and the locals tend to steer you away but it is a very nice location to enjoy the outside. We will be back to enjoy it again.
