You will not be alone at this beach but we thought it was well worth it! Visiting in October it was still plenty warm to swim during the day. Be careful of where you drive/park if you are not used to sand. We were camping out of a minivan and parked farther back from the water to make ensure we wouldnt get stuck. We saw multiple people have trouble while we were there but there were some regulars who always helped get them out of the sand. It was windy at night but nothing we couldnt sleep through.
