This wide expanse of white sand is famous for bodysurfing due to its powerful shorebreak, but it also teems with sunbathers, swimmers, walkers, joggers, and folks just out for the incredible views. The sand is soft and fluffy and feels wonderful as it squishes through your toes. Swimmers need to beware; waves break in extremely shallow water and you need to watch out for riptides. There are no amenities at the beach, but picnic tables, showers, and toilets are available at the nearby cove. Amenities: lifeguards. Best for: solitude, swimming, walking.
