Beach is almost perfect. Blue and clear water but be aware. I have been here three times and it's been always the same. Strong currents and war sting precautions should be taken.

It was a bit windy the day we went, but this beach was much less crowded and just as beautiful. It's a great place to have a beachside cookout too.

Love love this location but the jellyfish are infested full moon times. 4 of the 8 of us has gotten stung. So make sure you check full moon dates.

If your son has his military ID/CAT card, then he can act as your sponsor and escort you onto the base. Depending upon the threat level, you may also need to show ID (driver's license or passport), but usually that isn't... More
