Sorry but if you really want a crystal clear beach water you won't find it here. There's a lot of dead animal shells and you can't see your feet in the water as it's brown. Better try other options around here. It seems like this...More

If you don't mind seaweed, just step over and get to sand. Very warm waters, playground for kids and overall nice.
