I decided to stop here on a very very cold day!! Let me tell you...it was worth it. Beautiful view!
Great beach! $8 parking was a bit steep if you were only going for a few hours. Clean, with a bunch of garbage cans for trash. Would definitely recommend an umbrella or canopy as there aren’t any pavilions. Nice restrooms next to the restaurant, that are open to the public, not just patrons. Clean and well working outdoor shower pad as well.
