  • This beach is quite large and stretches for a long ways. Nice white sand and large waves for surfing and playing in the surf. There is also an under tow to be aware of. Shade can be found under the trees that come right down to the beach sand. The walk to the beach was tough in the heat, but with a 4x4 you can drive down. The south end of the beach has lots of vendors that rent chairs and umbrellas and sell food.
  • This is my favorite beach. Lots of wildlife to enjoy !
