  • Very small parking lot off the entrance from John Daly Blvd. So, if you don't go early or aren't lucky, you may not find a legal parking spot. But, once parked, there was a nice trail winding its way to the beach. Or, if you are a bit more adventurous, there is a moderately challenging shorter route down to the beach. It was fun for us and our kids, age 8 and 6, trekking down. However, you may need to think twice about this steeper route if you have small kids, more elderly, or less physically capable persons in your party. It was nice to walk along the beach, breathe fresh sea air and watch beach goers with their dogs splashing in the waves or chasing thrown objects. Very peaceful and relaxing. Great morning stroll to start the lazy Sunday. The place we stayed wasn't far away (which is a HUGE plus) so after a few minutes we were back, showered, and ready for lunch.
  • Fire pits are allowed in the Southern portion of beach. A few friends and I were asked to move by beach security.
