  • Greatest beach in the world both warm and cool so I took my family there, easy parking not that much people so no big crowds, the food there is awesome too, check this beach out it's worth it for a great day at the beach
  • The shops here are cute. There is whale watching here. There is also a little ferris wheel and activities you can do. Very family friendly.
  • Love, Love, Love! A bit out of the way but worth the trip. Great views of the Pacific Ocean with great sunsets.
  • I love this beach! There's a little amusement park. There's a park. It doesn't get too crowded so you don't have to worry about parking.
