Really enjoyed the beach and great to see the boats come in and out of marina, planes flying near and not as crowded as some of the beaches to the south. Great for families and relaxation time.

Very placid water. Safe for kids and paddle boards. A nice place. No place to drive a car on...unlike Pismo...we watched a beautiful new Camero made a wrong turn and go in to the hubcaps. People are helpful and he was out in an hour!

As always the pacific water is cold but who cares. Beach was well groomed and well guarded. Life guards present. Shells in abundance. Water clear! Just loved it way more than venice beach craziness.

Beautiful beach, quiet leading on to the more lively venice and muscle beaches. Lovely sunsets and easy access to shops, bars and restaurants.

If you like the beach this is a lovely spot to come and bring your family. Perfect for any day of the year as there is just something magical about the sea.

The beaches here are less busy and touristy than the venice beach and Santa Monica beach. Also easy to do water activities if you are near the docks. I really like hornblower cruises in marina for brunch
