Fodor's Review

Less than a mile from Old Harbor, this busy, family-oriented beach has parking lots and plenty of space to lock up bicycles. There's a beach pavilion with a snack bar, showers, and chair and umbrella rentals. The surf here tends to be calmer, making it ideal for kids, and there are lifeguards. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets. Best for: sunrise; kayaking; swimming; walking.
