Three hotels line this beach, making it popular with tourists; you might want to avoid this place if you're not into the Spring Break college kid party scene, which tends to crowd the beach during the Easter season.

This beach is very beautiful. The ocean water has an amazing aquamarine color. There are several good restaurants with outdoor sitting located on this beach. The best one is Lido Restaurant, very exquisite and elegant with delicious food.

I spent 2 wonderful days hanging out at this beach. It was peaceful and not very crowded. Loved having lounge chair, umbrella, and towel. Nice gentle surf. I can't wait to return.
