This was a very nice, less crowded beach. At either end there were some tide pools with lots of interesting nooks to explore. The beach had less of an incline and wave action seemed to be milder also. Great for families/kids.

Great beach. It was not crowded. It had great surf to play in. We weren't surfing so i don't know how it rated for surfing. Very active waves. Probably not great for small children.
