We just visited 7/25 - 7/28, and the beach was great! We do not have a 4x4, so it was nice to drive right on the beach. We parked very close to the entrance and then backed down towards the water. No crowds was the best part!

I know this is three weeks later, but has anyone been out there recently? Has there been a lot of rain that way? Wanted to go this weekend but didn’t want to deal with mosquitoes and hardly any sand from the rain.

Had a great time this past week, no problems!!

I think I love your shirt!

like that shirt!
