Clean and inviting. Lots of people making use of it in the winter. Not over commercialized. A good old fashioned beach with lots of walking around if you want to.

We generally visit with our kids and young puppy as he can run around like a nutter!! Have only been once in summer and found it a bit too busy. Lots of parking.
