The water is always cold however the beach is one of the best and the sunrise makes for a very nice picture. Lot of room for football, frizbee or volleyball and there are always several kites In the air.

Plenty to do with arcades for the kiddos, shopping for the adults and plenty of places to eat. I was surprised at how clean and well kept the whole area was.
