A great beach if you want to avoid crowds. Plenty of parking any time of day. The road can be a little rough but we made it just fine in a mini van. There is a bit of a hike if you want to get to the northern beach (with soft sand) The Northern beach has PLENTY of shade trees, so no need for umbrellas. No life guard and no showers. Great waters for little ones. If you don’t want to make the small hike, The southern beach is a bit rocky and not good for body boarding or kids but GREAT for snorkeling. Lots of turtles and fish. Northern beach: The waters are a bit murky from the sand. Not my favorite for snorkeling because of this.
If you're driving a rental vehicle (not a 4-wheel drive), then you may want to park out near the highway entrance and walk (I did and it got very hot on the way). But once you reach this beach, you'll forgot all about the trudge to reach it.
