  • Stayed here a few days and enjoyed it. Compared to Florida and California beaches is the reason I gave it a average rating. I thought it was a nice beach, but compared to the FL/CA it's just average. ...  more »
  • It was in the mid 70s when we went but good camping weather. Beach was not crowded at all and pleanty of room to fly kite play in the sand etc. 
  • January. Temps in the Mid 60's. Misty rain on and off today. Miles and miles of clean beach to walk just for me.
