A beautiful walk early on Christmas morning (2018), with great light for photography and a few dozen people enjoying the walk.

Long and nice boardwalk just beside the beach, can walk across shoreline, beautiful beach view. It was not crowded, probably due to off season, visited on March 29 2018.

Wide, well made boardwalk that's a lovely walk. Much cleaner than the beach, unfortunately...

Great place for a weekend getaway; if the traffic doesn't get to you too much, that is.

It an easy ride during the week depending on the weather. If it's hot it gets packed with people so you have to learn to share the boardwalk with everyone. I walk end to end and bike it as well. Both are great for some exercise
