A easy to access beach. Not to busy in weekdays. A ton of shells, fun to look through but wouldn't recommend going barefoot.

I was in the part of the beach in front of the houses, so there are not public bathrooms near. I parking in a little public parking, no pay. Very limited numbers of parking lot but the best zone of the beach.
