    Beautiful beach, but watch out for the meter maids. There was one on site, who was ticketing people as they went to the pay box. All three of our cars received tickets as we where waiting to pay at the box. I confronted her as she left, and basically just shrugged her shoulders and said too bad. That aside, lovely place.

    Excelent beach. Clean, no crowded. The only problem is the parking, you have to wait 30+ mins if you go from 12-3pm. Parking rate is $4 per hour. Showers available and restrooms.

    A nice beach at a park. Away from streets and buildings. Clean restrooms and a shelter.
