  • Great park and very chill. They should have dumpsters for trash. It is great fishing and kayaking off the beach. Great karma.
  • My family and I have been going to this beach for over twenty five years, love this beach, it's easy to get to, it's kept very clean.and everything is within a short driving distance.
  • Great vacation spot! Parking can be a nightmare. Consider parking far away and taking a bus or uber in.
  • Beautiful park. Must check out the beach beside the pier. Great for young kids.
  • Great breech! Get there by 9:30 to avoid parking lines.
