Fun!

Loved the ambiance around the beach! My first time going to the beach and it was just awesome! If you want a fun people filled beach, this is a must!

We stopped here with our family including our almost 2 year old granddaughter. It has a good playground for little kids, it is on the water for going to the beach and it has both sun and shade picnic tables.

Beautiful area to rent boats, paddle-boards, or just walk/bike the paved path around the bay. There are areas to sit in the grass, or sand, and Catamaran resort/spa has pretty good food (inside/outside seating).

We love taking our daily walks along the bay you can use the pathway or walk on the grass. Lots of people either biking, rollerblading, running or just strolling along. It is also dog friendly after 6pm as of April 1st.

Warm weather it's perfect to walk, jog, ride bikes, bonfire or do water activities on. You can catch pretty sunsets for romantic evenings here. Lots of families and pets are welcomed. You get a good feel of Southern California here. You can launch boats and jetski's too. There's a visitor center and restrooms.

This is a beautiful park of bays and lagoons, boating, swimming, biking, hiking, and concerted loafing. And it's one block from the ocean, as well.

We spent most of our day here walking about and enjoying the beautiful boardwalks, palms tress, beaches. I'd also recommend hiring a bike to enjoy all the Park has to offer.
