  • Very nice place for a beach wedding! Drove up from Los Angeles for my niece's wedding and had the best time! Highly recommend!

  • Not sure what Google wants me to share. It's a beach. I was scuba diving there, and this time around it was fun. Which is not always the case. This is advanced diving spot, so if you are diving there, you better know what you are doing. This, though, has nothing to do with the beach.

  • This beach is beautiful, and an easy pit stop on the side of the road. Last time we visited, we watch several dolphins play for about 30 minutes right off shore. This beach is nice to sit on the sand for a few minutes. Our kids loved it too, but one of the lifeguards did come over to warn us that the waves are very strong. He recommended we keep them away from the water. May not be the best beach for families if you want to play in the waves.

  • Nice view. Free parking. Dogs allowed. (If you're trying to build sand castles, you might want to try a different beach. Sand is too thick)

  • Dog friendly, beautiful, clean bathroom with soap! Well taken care of.
