Nice beach, clean and a good place for the family. Bring your sun block because there is no shade, unless you bring your own. Swim in the Life Guard protected areas, at times there are very bad currents that HAS TAKEN SWIMMERS OUT TO SEA!...More

clean beach. the only thing that was disappointing was seeing so many homeless people laying on boardwalk and beaches in the mornings. I hate seeing this happening in America, I really hated seeing this on my vacation. theses situations are really stressful.....
