And we found it to be all that it is reputed to be. It is a beautiful beach that stretches far and wide. There is a little island with 2 palm trees out in the water, more scenic than something you really need to visit by canoe or kayak (but you can).
The sand slopes very gradually from the beach. The waves are particularly great. As a last thought to our packing, we tossed in the Boogie Boards. We seem to have retained all that our children taught us on the beaches in California years ago. We had such fun. It felt like you could ride the wave forever before you got to the beach.
