  • The view is so beautiful, the water is bit cold, sometimes you see seals which make you think about the great while shark warning sign. Very clean beach not crowded at all.  more »
  • At the height of tourist season, the beach was still plenty big enough to find an uncrowded spot. Fun waves and lots of seals.  more »
  • Our new favorite beach! Marconi Beach is $25/day to park and there's plenty of spaces. The riptide is strong here so lifeguards are vigilant and will direct swimmers/surfers away from the riptides...  more »
  • Great beach the water is super clean and great for a swim..
  • The stairs are 10000% awful. Up or down. Very hard for anyone or any age to go up and down. There has to be better more gentle solutions. Watching young families with infants toddlers school age kids and strollers coolers umbrellas toys towels etc trying to go down and up was painful. And painful physically for the rest of us. I think some consultations with (civil?) Engineer firms could come to a better solution.
  • Love this place. I look forward to visiting it every summer.
  • My favorite set spot
  • My favorite beach after "Old Silver Beach
