BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This is one of the longest and busiest of the area beaches, and it's geared more toward the young and active.
  • A generally light surf makes this the place for novice surfers and windsurfers to learn or improve skills. For the same reason, it's popular for sailboats, too.
  • The beach has outdoor showers so you can wash off the salt water; there are picnic areas (bring your own food), and there's also a cafe.
