"Beautiful white sand and blue waters. Great for enjoying the weather, a little fun in the sun, and learning to boogie board as I did"

"We visited here while on the dune buggies. The water is great. The locals were super friendly. Since we were dirty from drying it was a pleasure to just walk into the water. We will go there again."
