We visited on a saturday, it was very busy! Beautiful white sandy beach. There are bathrooms and changing rooms available. Where we parked there was an ice cream shop. Lifeguards are on duty. Great place to spend the day.

This is one of the more accessible beaches with easy access and ample parking. When other beaches are full, this one may still have spaces. There are multiple amenities here along with lifeguards. This beach is mostly families with more seniors later toward sunset.
