The public beach near the inlet has always been clean and never overcrowded. It is always an enjoyable experience with the family to relax and enjoy some activity in the ocean.

The waves are big enough to ride but not scary for kids, the sand is soft, and it wasn't crowded. Even the Scopes picture people were very nice as they came around to capture the fun moments. Always a must! Already planning a return trip!
