    This used to be an amazing beach with a great boardwalk and beautiful beach access. The hurricane last season took out the boardwalk and now there's a chain link fence in its place. There is a still a large bathroom with outdoor showers for washing off sand, which is great when going to the beach with kids. The bathrooms are some of cleanest public beach bathrooms I've seen. There are a few picnic tables and a pavilion as well as a small building you can rent out. And there is a playground if you cross the busy road. It's one of my favorite beaches to go to. Never super crowded. Close enough to restaurants. Clean. Just a great beach.

    Nice area for large group picnics and cookouts. Decent bathrooms and beach access. Just be alert because current can be a little strong at times.

    Not crowded and always a pleasant experience. The storm took out the boardwalk area, the chainlink fence is a bit inconvenient but a wonderful beach!!!

    Very beautiful with free parking. Its important to get their early, especially on the weekend as it can fill up quick.

    Great, hidden gem. Not much to do at the park. Pavilion, play area, but right across the street from the beach!
