Great beginner beach, but it gets big and it gets good. Winter and fall and spring is better. Closes out at low tide, nice bars at high.
Get there early for sea wall parking. Lot parking is by resident permit only in the summer. Very friendly.
One needs to frequently to find good waves. I live 2hrs away so I can only go Saturday's during the summer.
